I stopped in at Wholesale Ag Products near Carrington, N.D., the other day. Bruce Bachmeier, general manager, told me about a new movie coming to Fargo on May 1.
He says his daughter is a state FFA officer and said one of the other state officers saw this movie while in Washington, D.C. They thought it was excellent.
It’s apparently scheduled at the Century 10 theater in Fargo, as well as a few theaters in the Twin Cities. It offers a bit of reality for people who have a difficult time grasping today’s agriculture.
According to one promotion: The farm-focused, feature length documentary Farmland will be released across 60 major national markets in the U.S. on May 1st. Allentown Productions says Farmland offers viewers an intimate and firsthand glimpse into the lives of six young farmers and ranchers across the country – chronicling their high-risk, high-reward jobs and their passion for a way of life that has been passed down from generation to generation. Award-winning filmmaker James Moll says audiences will hear thoughts and opinions about agriculture from the mouths of farmers and ranchers themselves.
