At the Fork
An omnivore grapples with the moral aspects of farming animals for food and explores what goes on at a large-scale American farm.
Filmmaker and omnivore John Papola, together with his vegetarian wife, Lisa, offer up a look at how farm animals are raised for consumption. With unprecedented access to large-scale conventional farms, Papola seeks answers to the questions behind every hamburger, glass of milk, and baby-back rib. What he discovers are not heartless industrialists, but America's farmers — real people who, along with him, are grappling with the moral dimensions of farming animals for food.
