The Making of 'Farmland,' Ag's Newest Documentary

  Farmer participants of 'Farmland' reflect on experiences making the film.

If offered another opportunity to share the story of their farms and ranches in documentary form, five of the farmer-participants in the new "Farmland" film said they wouldn't hesitate to jump on board.

"I would do it again in a minute," fourth-generation hog farmer Ryan Veldhuizen said during a press call just ahead of the film's Tribeca Festival debut in New York. He was joined by four other farmers who participated in the new documentary.

The film, which hits selected theaters May 1, focuses on the lives of young farmers in six different food production areas. It is billed as a glimpse into the farmers' "high-risk, high-reward" jobs.
