About the Movie
Sgt. Adam Burke made a promise to God. Bleeding out from a mortar hit in Iraq, Adam promised God that if he could live to see his family again, he would do something to make his life worth saving. Two years later he started the Veterans Farm, a place of emotional solace and job training in organic blueberry production for disabled vets like himself. Ground Operations: Battlefields to Farmfields champions combat vets who are rebuilding their own lives as organic farmers & ranchers and revitalizing their communities with access to local, affordable, fresh, healthy food. These heroes blow the lid off stereotypes and you’ll be rooting for them all the way to your farmers market.
Finally Hope for Veterans!!
Wow! Finally a film that offers a real solution for our veterans and our nation’s food production. This veterans in the film speak from the heart and allow themselves to be vulnerable. It really creates a strong emotional connection. What they have had to overcome and the success and redemption they have achieved through sustainable farming is something truly remarkable. They are literally planting the seeds for a new future. The film is really well done, engaging, and very cohesive for its short run time. This is an absolute must see for any veteran, but also farmers, artisan food producers, backyard gardeners, and actually anyone interested in having enough food to eat in 10 years.
Healing veterans; Feeding our Nation
This is a film about what's working! These veterans are nurtured by farming organically, and we are nurtured by their work! Feels great to watch a real story in which things work out! We get to know these vets, and feel the healing effect that farming has on them!
A Sensible Solution to a HUGE Problem
WoW!! Thanks to the makers of this film! Vets becoming farmers is the perfect transition - from killing fields to nurturing fields. This is an answer to healing their wounds. I saw this film in the hometown of its making with a couple hundred people. It brought tears to my eyes when a veteran spoke up and said he decided right then to become a farmer. You could hear the relief in his voice. Marvelous!
