“Having been lucky enough to have grown up on a farm in Danville in the ‘50s, this film really took me back to the days of cowboy movies, milk cans and loose hay.” – Nancy Jones

Surprise – there’s a scene in this movie that features our own Rev. Mary and Andy Clark that takes place in Mary’s former church in Vergennes, VT.

There seems to be agreement that what makes Vermont special is our scenic vistas – a patchwork of working farms across our landscapes. One year after the devastation of Hurricane Irene, many Vermont Farmers are still struggling to catch up, while some have had no other choice but to go out of business.

The VT Farm Disaster Relief Fundjust closed its 6th round of accepting applications from farmers seeking financial assistance. According to grant administrator Ryan Torres, 114 applications were just received and the Fund does not have enough cash to meet all the needs.

It is costing us $500 to bring the film, with its director and producer, to Bradford. The more donations we have, the more money we can send to help VT farmers recover from their losses. To learn more about the VT Farm Disaster Relief Fund, please check out this page at the Vermont Community Foundation website.

If you’re not able to make it to the film, please consider donating to our indiegogo campaign. All proceeds will be sent to the VT Farm Disaster Relief Fund.
