The quiet revolution of mega-farming that is threatening our countryside, farms and food.‘This eye-opening book . . . deserves global recognition’ Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall‘Devastating . . . demands reading and deserves the widest possible audience’ Joanna Lumley‘He is informed enough to be appalled, and moderate enough to persuade us to take responsibility for the system that feeds us’ Guardian: Book of the Week

Farm animals have been disappearing from our fields as the production of food has become a global industry. We no longer know for certain what is entering the food chain and what we are eating. We are reaching a tipping point as the farming revolution threatens our countryside, health and the quality of our food wherever we live in the world.

From the antibiotics routinely given to industrially farmed animals to the chemicals that are killing our insect populations, Farmageddon is a fascinating and terrifying investigative journey behind the closed doors of a runaway industry across the world – from Europe to the USA, from China to Latin America. It is both a wake-up call to change our current food production and eating practices, and an attempt to find a way to a better farming future.
