About the Film:

Farmers For America poses the question: Who Will Feed Us?

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.

The documentary is narrated by Mike Rowe (Dirty Jobs, Returning the Favor) and stars farmers from every region of the United States including national agricultural leaders like Joel Salatin, Eliot Coleman, Paul Grieve and Lindsey Lusher-Shute.

FARMERS FOR AMERICA (2017)

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 21 | 6:30 P.M.
ASHLEY SQUARE CINEMA

Q&A with Matthew Keener (one of the film's featured farmers), local farmer Beth Tharp (Legan Livestock and Grain) and Amber Espey (also featured in the film) immediately after the film in the Emerson Room at the Inn at DePauw. 

This documentary traces the extraordinary changes coming to America’s food system as more consumers flock to farmers’ markets, embrace farm-to-table lifestyles, and insist on knowing from where their food originates. At the center 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. Co-sponsored by Greencastle Mayor Bill Dory's office and the Ullem Campus Farm and Center for Sustainability.
