Battered Badgers

Man, it's easy to romanticize the life of an organic farmer when you're living in the concrete jungle. This short film about the devastation caused by August floods in Wisconsin and Minnesota is really quite sobering. I really can't imagine having a livelihood that is so dependent on variables beyond your control. One of these farmers was out $90,000 dollars because almost all of the late-summer crops were ruined. What a tough life!
