Nov. 27: Feature length documentary, Farmland, from Oscar®-winning filmmaker, James Moll, follows the next generation of American farmers and ranchers, all in their 20s, in various regions across the US. Moll spent five months meeting farmers and ranchers before he settled on the six who are featured in Farmland. In order to authentically tell the story through the eyes of this next generation, Moll extensively researched the subject and looked for individuals to profile, specifically choosing from different farming and ranching production methods, various types of crops and livestock and geographic diversity.

 

Among the six farmers and ranchers featured in the film is David Loberg, a fifth generation corn and soybean farmer, who runs the family farm with his mother. The farm also custom feeds 500 head of cows for a local dairy operation. David lives in Nebraska with his wife and infant son.  Along with Loberg, the film will look at the lives of a Colorado and Texas cattle rancher, a Georgia poultry farmer, a Minnesota pork producer and vegetable growers in California and Pennsylvania.

 

The film, made with generous support from the U.S. Farmers & Ranchers Alliance®, gives viewers a firsthand glimpse into the lives of these young farmers and ranchers, their high-risk/high-reward jobs and their passion for a way of life that, more often than not, is passed down from generation to generation.
