Tomorrow's Harvest

Tomorrow's Harvest

Agriculture is one of the most important industries in the United States. Farming, on the whole, means big business. But there's another side to farming that is as much a part of America today as it was hundreds of years ago, the family farm. Certainly, technologies have improved and assisted the family farmers, but there are some things about being a family farmer that never change, and that's the message of this classic documentary. Singer/songwriter Ry Cooder (Into the Purple Valley) starts the program with a song and its message is clear, "it's the farmer who feeds us all"; then we see profiles of two American farming families, the Friedrich family's dairy farm and the Miller family's cattle farm, both located in Kansas. We meet the family members in-between the chores they do on a daily basis and discover the reasons why they choose to be farmers; we too learn how important these farms are to each community's local economy.
