Green Memo [Interactive]: Should Farming Return to its Roots?

In an opinion piece in today's Green Room at BBC World.com, writer Graham Harvey, author of the book "We Want Real Food," argues farming should return to its roots of pasture-fed cattle and other traditional farming methods. Intensive farming methods should be replaced with the traditional ones, Harvey argues in his "green" viewpoint article.

By going back to more traditional farming methods, Harvey says the food industry can deliver more sustainable and healthier food, as people become more aware of what ends up on their plates.
