[It's] a must-see for organic food zealots. For those who aren't, but are still curious about food and farming issues, rent "Food, Inc." instead. full review

G. Allen Johnson, San Francisco Chronicle

A worthy addition to the growing annals of movies and books advocating for sustainable farming methods. full review

Stephanie Merry, Washington Post

The one-sidedness of "Farmageddon'' isn't just an artistic failing. It's an argumentative failing, too. full review
