We’re facing a unique moment in America’s agricultural history. The average age of the U.S. farmer is now 60 and the challenges facing young farmers have never been greater. It’s a time of upheaval, risk…and extraordinary opportunity. This film advocates the new generation of young people to stepping forward and the challenges they’re facing.
