Northern Soybean and Corn Board to Host FARMLAND Showing

Fargo event brings farmers and non-ag community together

The Clay and Wilkin County Soybean and Corn Growers Association & their checkoffs will host a free screening of FARMLAND, a film by Academy Award®-winning director James Moll at the Fargo Theatre, beginning at 7 p.m., on Dec. 2. The documentary takes the viewer inside the world of farming for a firsthand glimpse into the lives of six young farmers and ranchers.

Many Americans have never stepped foot on a farm or ranch, or even talked to the people who grow and raise the food we eat, yet are increasingly passionate about understanding where their food comes from.

The county Association will also be hosting a panel discussion to bring different views of farming together and allow attendees to ask questions. The panel will be moderated by Rep. Joshua Boschee, D-North Dakota.

Panelists include:
• Mark Boen- Area vegetable farmer, CSA
• Preston Dagen- Industry representative- REA Hybrids, DSM
• Andy Maier- Area corn, soybean & sugar beet farmer
• Rob Olson- Area soybean, wheat & hog farmer
• Wanda Patsche- Farm wife & CommonGround member

Fargo Monthly, an events and lifestyle magazine in the Fargo-Moorhead region, featured the upcoming event in the November 2015 issue.

Attendees are encouraged to bring a canned food donation before the movie starts to receive a free pop and popcorn. Click here for more information.
