LADIES OF THE LAND (USA, 2007, 30 min.)

As small, family farms continue to disappear and large, mechanized farms dominate American agriculture, a new kind of farmer is sprouting up across the land: women. Ladies of the Land profiles four women who once never thought they’d be in charge of a farm, but today raise cattle, sell goat cheese and harvest organic vegetables. With commentary from Carolyn Sachs, Ph.D., one of the nation’s leading experts on women in agriculture, and Amy Trauger, Ph.D., founder of the Pennsylvania Women’s Agricultural Network, the film takes us on a journey through America’s new heartland. Directed by Megan Thompson.
