Discovering FARMLAND

The U.S. Farmers & Ranchers Alliance® and Discovery Education have partnered on an exciting new initiative to engage urban youth with a first-hand glimpse into modern agriculture. Using the award-winning documentary, "FARMLAND, a film by James Moll," as a foundation, this new initiative will inspire students using an innovative, multi-modal curriculum that brings to life critical issues impacting the agriculture industry, such as sustainability, the new science behind farming and entrepreneurship. "FARMLAND, a film by James Moll" is available for viewing in its entirety on Netflix.
