Teaser of our new film featuring young farmers:
The challenges they face, the aspirations they have and the motivations that keep them going.
Working Title: Farming – The Next Generation
Written and Produced by: Tamer Soliman & Sarah Douglas
“There are some really big questions and problems that we’re facing today… but maybe the most important one is that we don’t have enough young farmers.“
– Stuart Oke, Farmers, Rooted Oak Farm
Ask anyone these days and chances are they’ll say they support local food – they’re aware of the importance of shopping at the farmers market, enjoy farm-to-table dining, and appreciate the seasonality of what they eat. But how often do these values translate into actions? And how many of us ever acknowledge the people behind our food system, our farmers?
“It’s important for us to be inserted into these positions and to let people know that the agriculture system is something that’s on our mind and that we are willing to take on the challenge of keeping it going”
– Adabu Brownhil Jefwa, Youth Farmer, National Farmers Union
