Farmland at the Tryon Theatre Aug. 25 and 26

Published 10:00 pm Thursday, August 14, 2014

Along with the celebration of agriculture in North Carolina, Polk County Farm Bureau is sponsoring the viewing of Farmland on Aug. 25 and 26 at the Tryon Theatre at 7 p.m. An informative documentary on lives of young farmers and ranchers across the U.S. as they take the responsibility of farming our future food resources.
Most Americans have never stepped foot on a farm or ranch or even talked to the people who grow and raise the food we eat. Farmland will take an intimate look at the lives of farmers and ranchers in their 20s, all of whom are now responsible for running their farming business.
Through this film from award-winning director, James Moll, you’ll step inside the world of farming for a first-hand glimpse into the lives of young farmers and ranchers. Learn about their high-risk/high reward jobs and passion for a way of life that has been passed down from generation to generation, yet continues to evolve.
Check the Tryon Theatre website for further details. Admission is free.
