The preferred choice for farmers of Agricultural Tracks

I remember back in 2014 my viewing of the documentary film entitled Farmland, and how interesting it was to see and hear about the lives of six young, next generation farmers.   Films like this are an extremely important aid in educating our society about those folks responsible for feeding this world, and I only hope this movie reached and filled many people with new insights.

The quest goes on in terms of informing the public, and there’s a new nonfictional account that focuses on some exceptional changes coming to America’s food system.  It’s narrated by an individual who embodies the work of farmers – Mike Rowe.  We are all familiar with Mike, especially when it comes to his shows Dirty Jobs and Somebody’s Gotta Do It.

The website https://www.leaveitbetter.com/farmers-for-america/ paints a compelling picture:

The documentary traces the extraordinary changes coming to America’s food system as more and more consumers flock to farmers’ markets, embrace farm-to-table lifestyles and insist on knowing where their food is coming from. At the center of the film are the farmers, young and old, who provide the spirit and energy to bring urban and rural America together over what both share in common:  our food. These farmers reflect nothing less than the face of America.

With the average age of today’s farmer at 60, and rural America losing population as the cost of land and equipment soars, this film reveals the people waiting to take their place, the practices they’re championing and the obstacles they must overcome.

Take a look at the trailer:

Farmers for America’ outreach partners are the National Farmers Union, Farmer Veteran Coalition, ATTRA Sustainable Agriculture, Mike Rowe WORKS Foundation and the National Young Farmers Coalition.  Its National Premiere will be in Indianapolis later this month, and if  you get a chance, take the opportunity to attend (along with friends and family) a host screening near you.  I’m sure it will be well worth your time.
