From the film-makers: "We face a unique moment in America's agriculture. The average US farmer is 60 years old. Half of our farmland is going to change hands in the next 12 years. It's a time of upheaval, risk and extraordinary opportunity. To continue to feed ourselves in the years ahead, we need a new generation of young people to step forward. Farmers for America is a documentary film to celebrate, support and inspire young farmers."
