The Wayne County Cooperative Extension invites all to see Farmland, a film by James Moll, and learn more about how farmers spend their days producing food for the country.

This free movie is showing on Tuesday, January 26, 2016, at 7pm. The Wayne County Cooperative Extension is showing the film for free to ensure those who want to see it, can.

Farmland, a feature length, award-winning documentary, shows the inside lives of six young farmers and ranchers. According to their site:

Many Americans have never stepped foot on a farm or ranch or even talked to the people who grow and raise the food we eat, yet are increasingly passionate about understanding where their food comes from. Through the personal stories of these farmers and ranchers, viewers learn about their high-risk/high-reward jobs and passion for a way of life that has been passed down from generation to generation, yet continues to evolve.

This special showing of Farmland is in the Paramount Theatre, 139 S. Center Street, Goldsboro NC.

Produced by Moll’s Allentown Productions, Farmland was made with the generous support of the US Farmers & Ranchers Alliance (USFRA).

Based at Universal Studios in Los Angeles, Allentown Productions is a film and television production company specializing in non-fiction filmmaking. Allentown Productions was established by filmmaker James Moll, who was born in Allentown, Pennsylvania — hence, the name of the company. His work as a documentary director/producer has earned him numerous awards.

USFRA consists of more than 80 farmer- and rancher-led organizations and agricultural partners representing virtually all aspects of agriculture. It works to engage in dialogues with consumers who have questions about how today’s food is grown and raised. USFRA is committed to continuous improvement and supporting US farmers and ranchers efforts to increase consumer confidence and trust in today’s agriculture.
