My name is Kimber and I’m majoring in anthropology & sociology. I am a filmmaker, and plan to use anthropology/sociology for making documentaries, I also attend film school. I have written several scripts for films and my goal is to learn persuasive writing this term. My theme for this project is animals and I will be volunteering at the Green Acres Farm where they have organic produce, raw goat milk and care for animals. I am interested in learning about the differences in a small rural farm and the factories and how the animals are treated differently and what goes into our bodies. I hope to work with the animals and understand what goes into maintaining an organic farm and also conquer some fears I have around certain animals.
Questions I have: I want to know the differences in farming methods, is the process longer since no chemicals or steroids are used, how difficult is it to maintain a small farm and make ends meet.
