“The Greenhorns” explores the lives of young farmers across the country, learning about the idealism, hard work, and focus that are required in order to exist in the realm of Big Ag.
Some farmers inherited their acreage, others are from cities, learning and growing as their crops succeed.
The film investigates the inspiration as well as the trials and hardships – the intermingled experience of so many farmers. It also touches upon the average age of the modern farmer (most are nearing retirement age) and the great need for young people to take up those shovels and pitchforks.
“The Greenhorns” is a feel-good movie, a documentary that unfolds like a story told by a good friend, and it might just be the answer you need if you’ve been dreaming of claiming fields of your own.
“The Greenhorns” will screen on Friday, February 24 at 7:00 p.m. in BriarPatch’s Community Room. Come early, as these film screenings fill up quickly.
