Farm to Fork Alcona to show ‘Rancher Farmer Fisherman’
LINCOLN – Farm to Fork Alcona is sponsoring a free presentation of the film, “Rancher Farmer Fisherman,” on Sunday at 2 p.m. in the Alcona High School Auditorium.
This new documentary tells the inspiring story of heartland conservation heroes who are feeding the world while stewarding the land and water.
The film is a tribute to people like Justin Knopf, a fifth-generation Kansas farmer revolutionizing industrial scale agriculture to rebuild the fertility, biodiversity and resilience of his soil, and Dusty Crary, a fourth-generation Montana rancher who forged alliances between cattlemen, federal agencies, hunters and environmental groups to protect the Rocky Mountain Front.
Based on a book by best-selling author Miriam Horn of Environmental Defense Fund, “Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman” was directed by Oscar nominee and Emmy winner Susan Froemke and Emmy winner John Hoffman. It is narrated by award-winning journalist Tom Brokaw.
The film premiered at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival and debuted on the Discovery Channel in August 2017.
