It can be difficult these days to find hard-hitting investigative reports on the urgent issues we face involving food, agriculture and environmental health. The Food and Environment Reporting Network (FERN) is a new independent, nonprofit news organization that is producing some outstanding articles.

Recent FERN stories include Whose Side Is the Farm Bureau On?; If Food’s in Plastic, What’s in the Food?; and How Your Chicken Dinner Is Creating a Drug-Resistant Superbug. If you want to help build a better food system, we highly recommend you follow FERN’s reports. You can subscribe to their newsletter at Food & Environment Reporting Network.
