Trivia

Farmland was funded by the U.S. Farmers and Ranchers Alliance (USFRA). This group was formed in response to recent movies and books like Fast Food Nation, which warned consumers off factory-farmed ground beef. The alliance includes state farm bureaus and agribusiness giants like Monsanto, whose genetically engineered seeds were targeted for criticism in the film Food Inc. Randy Krotz, with the Farmers and Ranchers Alliance, says they felt it was time to make their own movie. See more »

Farmland is Fair to the Public and Farmers
19 November 2014 | by See all my reviews

Farmland is a fair representation of a career in farming. There is no hype and no exaggeration. There is no spin. The only way to get a better idea of what US farms are actually like is to quit your day job and become a farmer like one brave woman profiled in this documentary actually did. The scenes are beautiful and they show the diversity in agriculture. The film covers animal and plant agriculture and profiles farms in many different locations in the US. Watch the film and then contact your local university's cooperative extension service to get in touch with farmers in your area. Go visit farms where you live (City dwellers this may be a field trip, but it is one worth making if you can).
