Demystifying Organic Agriculture

Organic Rising is the first feature-length film to demystify organic agriculture for the consumer.

Initially the documentary presents the two predominant U.S. agrarian practices: conventional and organic, and how they impact human health and the planet. It simultaneously demystifies the USDA organic regulatory process and farming methods allowing consumers to make informed choices and to explore avenues of supporting and maintaining a strong and robust agricultural future.
