About the Movie

Academy Award-Winning director James Moll helms Farmland, an in-depth documentary covering multiple personal stories of young US farmers and ranchers. Most Americans have never stepped foot on a working farm or ranch or ever had the opportunity to talk to the people who grow and raise the food we eat. Farmland takes an intimate look at the lives of young, 20-something farmers and ranchers, all of whom are now responsible for running their farming business. Nothing is off limits from GMO to organic from large farming to small. Get an insider view of the world of farming and a first-hand glimpse into the lives of this generation of 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.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: A film that plays more like a feature-length advertisement than like a documentary. You keep expecting the camera to zoom in on a packet of bacon or a box of cereal. – Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times, May 8, 2014

Rotten: Though the perspective of farmers is well worth examining, this good-looking 77 minutes of propaganda is heavy on sugar-coating and light on nutritional value. – Bill Edelstein, Variety, May 5, 2014

Rotten: "Farmland" often comes off like lobbyist propaganda, profusely extolling the virtues of the independent American farmer. – Martin Tsai, Los Angeles Times, May 1, 2014

Rotten: Perhaps if Moll offered less of the static sit-down interviews and more fly-on-the-grain verite, viewers might feel some new, intimate connection between the farmers and the nourishment that unites us. – Aaron Hillis, Village Voice, May 6, 2014

Better than the critics say

We actually enjoyed the movie. It was well shot, thoughtful, and honest. I get critics need to say something but it is certainly much better than 27%.

Solid, Touching and Honest Portrayal of Farming/Ranching

Loved it! Well written story-line about 5 young farmers and ranchers. None of the BS drama like you get from the other "gotcha" food documentaries. Instead, you feel very connected to each of the characters. Movie gives a good understanding of how hard it is to start or run a farm or ranch, and also shows the extraordinary but humble character of these guys. You quickly learn that farmers and ranchers are cut from a different cloth.
The "professional" reviewers were obviously wanting another rural America beat down. Don't listen to their ignorant whining. This is a solid movie and very enjoyable to watch.

Great overview

Farmland is a great overview of American farming. It is not meant to go into great detail about each individual farmer. It is more to get a overview of what farming can be like and why we need more trust in the American Farmer. This film shows different perspective both animal ag and crop ag and also showcasing both conventional and organic farming. If you are interested in seeing a overview of the different types of farming and what farmers go through this is the documentary to see.
