When Kristin Canty’s young son developed severe allergies, she found relief by feeding him raw milk. She couldn’t have known that would start a lifelong mission of advocacy and activism through filmmaking and food. Her feature film, Farmaggedon, exposed the hypocrisy of the FDA and USDA’s regulation of small farms and was distributed widely to great critical acclaim. She went on to become a farmer herself, raising livestock and growing produce to supply her restaurants Wood’s Hill Table and Adelita. Join us for a fascinating conversation about her career trajectory from speech pathologist to filmmaker, farmer and restauranteur.
