The average person is several generations removed from the farm. A new documentary, Farmland, takes an intimate look at the lives of the next generation farmers, all of whom operate their own farming and ranching business.
The film follows farmers and ranchers in their 20s and 30s from across the U.S., offering a glimpse into the high-risk, high-reward nature of farming and ranching.
The U.S. Farmers and Ranchers Alliance (USFRA) is a sponsor of the film in an effort to spur discussion about modern American agriculture.
“While making Farmland, I found myself immersed in a community of some of the most hard working, passionate people I’ve ever met. This film isn’t just about what it’s like to be a farmer, it’s about a way of life. It’s also about a subject that affects our lives daily,” said James Moll, the film’s director, in a USFRA press release.
The film will be released next spring. To view the trailer, visit www.farmlandfilm.com.
