Previous years have shown a dramatic increase in the propaganda armed against farmers and the food they produce. The country has seen documentaries, parodies and a plethora of articles aimed at discrediting the industry and spreading fear amongst consumers; but May 1st will bring a change in the media landscape. A new documentary entitled “Farmland” by Academy Award Winning director James Moll is hitting big screens across the country.
If you’ve ever wondered about the world of farming, this is an excellent opportunity for you to get front row seats. The film follows the lives of 6 young farmers and ranchers who are taking on the operational responsibilities of their farming businesses. Get a bird’s eye view of their family life, how and why technology is used on the farm and how they adapt to mother natures curve balls.
Check out the trailer here!
But wait…there’s more!
There is an exclusive private showing of the film on Thursday, May 1st @ 7:00 p.m. (here in Chicago) that will include a special panel discussion with local Illinois Farmers, and I’ve got 4 Golden tickets to giveaway. Simply leave a comment with your name and email address or contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.Â
