Sustainable Agriculture

By Devora Kimelman-Block

Josh Rolnick, The Sh'ma Institute, March 2010

This column of the Sigi Ziering series on ethics deals with sustainable agriculture and the moral and health problems with industrial animal farms. For example, the farms' focus is on gaining profit, with minimal concern for the environment, workers, animals, or the consumer's health. As the founder of KOL Foods, which makes available and promotes sustainable food systems, the author hopes to put ethics and kashrut back on the same plate.
