Program Title: Fit to Eat: the NL Farm and Food Show, episode 54, season 1
Description: How can a small population, on a large island, protect its food production from diseases and economic aggression in an age of "free" trade? No, I'm not talking about the island of Newfoundland, but the country of Iceland. This week on "Fit to Eat" I speak with a wise farmer and researcher, Ólafur Dýrmundsson, about Iceland's struggles with maintaining clean food, vibrant rural communities, solvent family farms and food sustainability in the shadow of the EU and the political pressure of Big Importers. This is one way to learn from each other. Join us on his small farm outside Selfoss, Iceland.
