Many Americans have never stepped foot on a farm or ranch, and have possibly never even spoken with the people who grow and raise the food we eat. The new documentary Farmland takes an intimate look at the lives of several farmers and ranchers, all in their 20's, and all responsible for running their own agriculture businesses. Academy Award-winning documentary filmmaker James Moll (The Last Days) traveled across the country to capture a first-hand glimpse into this high-risk/high-reward job, along the way discovering the passion these farmers have for a way of life that has been passed down from generation to generation, yet continues to evolve.
