‘Farmland’ set for Algona screening Nov. 18

By Staff | Nov 1, 2015

ALGONA – The screening of “Farmland”, a feature length documentary is set at 6:30 p.m. Nov. 12 at the Algona High School Little Theater, 601 S. Hale St. in Algona.

Farmland, filmed through the lens of Academy Award Winning filmmaker James Moll, will take viewers inside the world of farming for a first hand glimpse into the lives of six young farmers and ranchers in their twenties.

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 the high-risk and the passion they feel for their way of life, passed down from generation to generation.

This free event is sponsored by the Kossuth / Palo Alto County Economic Development Corporation’s Ag Committee, Iowa Corn Growers Association, and Kossuth County Farm Bureau.

An RSVP is required by Nov. 12 to reserve seating by calling (515) 295-7979.

Farmland was made with the generous support of the U.S. Farmers & Ranchers Alliance. The U.S. Farmers & Ranchers Alliance is an alliance consisting of a wide range of prominent farmer and rancher-led organizations and agricultural partners, including the Iowa Corn Growers Association.
