FRESH celebrates the farmers, thinkers and business people across America who are re-inventing our food system. Each has witnessed the rapid transformation of our agriculture into an industrial model, and confronted the consequences: food contamination, environmental pollution, depletion of natural resources, and morbid obesity. Forging healthier, sustainable alternatives, they offer a practical vision for a future of our food and our planet. Among several main characters, FRESH features urban farmer and activist, Will Allen, the recipient of MacArthur's 2008 Genius Award; sustainable farmer and entrepreneur, Joel Salatin, made famous by Michael Pollan's book, The Omnivore's Dilemma; and supermarket owner, David Ball, challenging our Wal-Mart dominated economy.

An informative and motivational look at where food comes from
"Fresh" is the perfect adjective to describe this movie's perspective on our destructive industrialized food systems, offering a variety of farmers' viewpoints, from conventional to revolutionary. The documentary underscores the obstacles today's farmers face in freeing themselves from the factory farm model while showcasing the success of some very progressive and charismatic individuals. I never saw Food Inc. so I can't corroborate previous reviewer's opinion, but I can say this film both educated and inspired me, and I believe there is room for even more media on this important topic. Fresh is a wake up call for those who have never questioned the origins of their processed diet, and a beacon for those who have.
