The feature-length documentary “Farmland” is now available for streaming on Netflix.com. With 57 million subscribers worldwide, Netflix is considered a premium destination for documentaries and is an opportunity to extend the reach of the film across the United States and into Canada.
“I'm thrilled that ‘Farmland’ has found a new home at Netflix,” said Academy Award-winning director James Moll. “There's a lot of interest out there in the next generation of farmers and ranchers, and Netflix is a great venue to meet and be inspired by these six hard-working Americans.”
“Farmland” was produced with the support of the U.S. Farmers and Ranchers Alliance, and provides viewers with a firsthand glimpse inside the world of farming and ranching by depicting the lives of six young farmers and ranchers. In addition to streaming on Netflix, the film is currently screening on major college and university campuses across the nation. Additional campuses interested in holding a screening can submit requests at FARMLANDfilm.com.
The film also continues to be available for rent and purchase at Walmart retail locations nationwide, Walmart.com, and via digital download on iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, Blockbuster On-Demand, Sony PlayStation, Vudu.com, Xbox and YouTube.
The National Corn Growers Association is a founding affiliate of the U.S. Farmers and Ranchers Alliance.
