The documentary includes several Iowa farmers, and the idea for the documentary was established when the producer learned about FFA. In 2011-12, Graham Meriwether (producer) provided many screenings of American Meat in Iowa high schools. The goal was to create discussion among young and old interested in food production. Filmings for "Farmers For America" started in 2012, in Iowa.
Prairie Lakes AEA and ISU Extension have a shared room which seats about 150 people. This is the Storm Lake FFA Chapter's first event, and our eleven members are excited to meet FFA members, parents and farmers. All are welcome and we need to know your attendance by Feb. 13th!
(Storm Lake FFA members may provide rolls/donuts.)
