Growing Farmers

Farmáři

The issue of access to affordable farmland is the greatest impediment to young farmers starting out on Long Island. Land values on Long Island have continued to rise, driving farmers off the land and precluding new farmers from entering the market. Growing Farmers, a new documentary, looks at the issue and explores some of the solutions.
