Foodie Friday :: The Greenhorns

I've had this preview for The Greenhorns bookmarked for a while now, and thought it would be a cool thing to share for FF. The documentary will take a look at the current movement of young men and women returning to farming culture and who can be found working the land rather than working the office. I'm looking forward to seeing this.

A snippit from the director's statement:

Our job in this generation is to rethink, recycle, retrofit and restore our land and our community; the Greenhorns have come to this revelation and taken action. This film is a way to convene a movement that is for now quite thinly spread out on the ground. Population density of young farmers might be as low as 1-2 per county in America. Yet, once seen as a whole in the film, you will find it an attractive and coherent sub-culture: proud, strong, tough, and a little bit nuts.

  1. That does look interesting. Let us know how you like it when you do see it. Have you seen "Mondo Vino" (a documentary about wine)? I really loved it, even though I don't know much about wine.
