Beautiful Documentaries Show Where Food Comes From

Real Food Media puts on a contest every year of short films with the common category of food.  The video entries range in specific topic from having goats in your yard for fresh goat milk to oregano farming in Mexico.  Each film is carefully shot, edited, and mixed with music to make it a beautiful, and delicious adventure.  Here are six favorite videos from the 2014 contest.
