This new film explores the growing pains of the local food movement and the uncertain fate of the farmers and farmland that keep it alive.

In three short vignettes we meet the young farm couple Ben and Taryn, who, on risky sweat-equity, have revitalized a famously fertile piece of farmland into a thriving community food hub, artisanal butcher Ben who helps us better understand how healthier, thoughtful meat production can be supported and sustained, and Richard and Adam, father and son organic dairy farmers struggling to keep their family farm going and in the family. These poignant stories help us understand the interconnected fates of Maine’s small farms, consumers and the local food movement.

Directed by Seedlight Pictures and Co-Produced with Maine Farmland Trust. Watch the trailer here.
