About the Movie

The average age of the U.S. farmer has reached 60. Half of America’s farmland will change ownership in the next 15 years. Our nation faces a little-known agricultural crisis on an unprecedented scale. Against all odds, this is the story of an eclectic mix of young people- military veterans, bright-eyed idealists, and multi-generational farmers who are accepting the virtuous challenge of feeding us all.”

Admission is $11.48. Tickets can be purchased in advance here.
