Farmland Premiere a Huge Success

More than 600 people packed the theatre in Sioux Falls Thursday night to see Farmland. The documentary was produced by Academy Award winning filmmaker James Moll. It depicts the day to day lives of six young farmers from various regions of the U.S., including Ryan Veldhuizen of Edgerton, Minnesota.   He says the film crews followed him and his family on their hog and cropping operation for several months to show the story of how food is produced.

Veldhuizen is hopeful the documentary will help bridge the gap between farmers and consumers.

Farmland will have a second run in Sioux Falls on May 15 and you can find out other dates and locations for the documentary at farmlandfilm.com.
