Philip’s Blog informs, educates and debates what’s going on with the future of our food and the impact on us all: humanity, animals, both farmed and wild, and on the planet. It’s a one-stop, interrogative and informative Blog that will get you thinking, get you talking and keep you ahead of the curve. It won’t always be pretty, but it’ll give you the facts and make you think. ‘Pow Wow’ is for all those who want to hear about, the here, the now and the future.
