Farmland film tells real story of where our food comes from

Farmland film tells real story of where our food comes from

(Austin, Texas)—Rural and urban Texans gathered in two Texas cities today for the premiere of a new documentary that takes a look at food from the viewpoints of the farmers and ranchers who grow it. Farmland, a documentary by Academy Award-winning director James Moll, follows the lives of six young farmers and ranchers from across America, including sixth generation rancher Brad Bellah of Throckmorton, Texas.

Farmland is a wonderful portrayal of the everyday blessings and challenges of American farmers and ranchers,” Texas Farm Bureau (TFB) Secretary-Treasurer Russell Boening, who saw the film Thursday night in Austin, said. “We encourage everyone to see the film to hear directly from these young men and women what it’s like to raise and grow food for American families.”

The film also debuted in Houston Thursday. It will play in Dallas and Graham at 7 p.m. on May 8. To see the Farmland trailer, find a location near you or learn more about the film subjects, visit FarmlandFilm.com.

Farmland was made with support from the U.S. Farmers and Ranchers Alliance (USFRA). It is being promoted in Texas by the Texas Farm Bureau and other agriculture organizations.
