Storyline

"The Farmer's Wife" takes us deep inside the world of Juanita and Darrel Buschkoetter, a remarkable young Nebraska farm couple, to tell a compelling love story. It follows the Buschkoetters over three years as they face seemingly insurmountable economic hardship, only to confront an even greater challenge: repairing their damaged marriage. What emerges is an epic story of faith, perseverance, and triumph, and an indelible portrait of a real American family's struggle to hold onto their dreams, and to each other. Written by Anonymous

Very insightful
19 January 2008 | by (Minnesota) – See all my reviews

I have to say that I completely disagree with the previous comment. Your comments lead me to believe that you have little experience or background with farming and your NYC location only serves to reinforce this hunch (correct me if I am wrong). Family farms today are very large (especially on the great plains, where it is absolutely necessary to maximize efficiency by farming a large amount of land). This land is not cheap to buy, and often renting is the only way that people are able to farm as much as their machinery warrants. Managing huge amounts of money and debt has become commonplace on farms in the US, and I thought that this documentary did a great job of showing the impacts that has on a typical farm family. There really is no reason that people should have to worry about what they are going to do on a day- to-day basis, especially when those people are providing food for the rest of us!
