SAXAPAHAW, NC --The acclaimed new documentary, Farmers for America, will be screened  July 2 at Saxapahaw’s Haw River Ballroom. There will be locally-sourced pulled-pork sandwiches from Reverence Farms  and will feature a panel discussion with farmer Suzanne Nelson Karreman, Haw River Mushroom producers Chess and Laura Stewart and Eric Henry of TS Designs. The panel will be moderated by the director of the documentary, Graham Meriwether.


The documentary addresses the major question facing American agriculture in the next 15 years: Who will feed us? With an average age of  60 among today’s farmers, and with 50 percent of American farmland destined to change hands in the next 15 years, the film features farmers from across the country who are creating alternative answers to the way we get most of our food today.


The film is narrated by popular TV host and podcaster Mike Rowe (Dirty Jobs, Returning the Favor).
