Friday Feature: Farmers for America Trailer

Friday Feature:  Farmers for America Trailer

This week’s featured video is actually the movie trailer for a new documentary called Farmers for America.  This video provides brief highlights of the issues that will be addressed in the documentary film that will be making its way across America over the coming months.  The film will debut at the Indianapolis City Market on October 26 & 27, 2017. There is also an opportunity to host a film screening of this documentary in your area.

The film’s website shares the following information about the documentary:

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.  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.  Farmers for America
