Library screens farm documentary
ONEIDA — The Oneida Public Library , 220 Broad St., will host a free screening of the documentary “Farmers for America” on Wednesday, Jan. 31 at 6 p.m.
The documentary traces the changes coming to America’s food supply as contemporary farmers seek to satisfy urban dwellers’ tastes for farm-to-table produce and their demand to know where their food is coming from. The film focuses on farmers young and old as they combine a love of the land with a fresh, entrepreneurial spirit.
Graham Meriwether wrote and directed the film for Leave It Better, an environmental group promoting healthy foods and progressive farming practices. The film is narrated by Mike Rowe.
Members of Future Farmers of America will discuss trends in local farming and agribusiness after the screening. Call 315-363-3050 for more information.
