About The Film:


"The Greenhorns," directed by Severine von Tscharner Fleming, documents America's new wave of young farmers reinventing and reinstituting our country's broken food system. One by one, these diverse and purposeful protagonists are taking to the fields. Their individual stories of living and working on the land reveal a patchwork social movement of fierce, fresh and savvy farmers all over the country. These young heroes lead lives that join courageous acts of reclamation with radical delight. A celebration of entrepreneurial spirit, agrarian culture and soil-based political engagement—as well as a grounded and expertly informed look at the infrastructural challenges of national agricultural reform—"The Greenhorns" envisions a healthy, hard-working and prosperous America.




About the Greenhorns nonprofit organization:

The Greenhorns is a nonprofit organization by and for young farmers. Mission: to recruit, promote, and support America's young farmers. The organization was founded in 2007 by Severine von Tscharner Fleming, farmer/activist, and Greenhorns' current director. The organization's primary focus was the production of a documentary film, "The Greenhorns." Ms. Fleming's film captures the valor and vision of a corps of young people from diverse backgrounds who are new entrants into sustainable farming. This film project quickly burgeoned into a young farmer network and an array of activities intent on sparking land-based action and a new, more robust farm culture in our communities. These projects include a resource-rich website and a popular blog, a weekly radio show, young farmer publications and other original educational resources, an interactive mapping database of the nation's beginning farmers, a National Young Farmers Coalition, public education programming in agriculture with the USDA and Cornell University, and the organizing and hosting of many social and educational events for beginning farmers across the country.
