Event Description

A new Documentary by No Umbrella Media and the Sap Pail in association with Food for Maine's Future, profiles Dan and Judy Brown of Gravelwood Farm in Blue Hill, Maine, and the issues surrounding the lawsuit filed against them by the State of Maine and Maine Department of Agriculture.  The film features "inside-the-barn" interviews with Dan and Judy as well as conversations with their farm patrons. Topics range from the importance of porducing food locally to the control over food policy by corporate-influenced government regulatory agencies. You Wanted to Be a Farmer is a revealing bottom-up look at food policy that raises important questions about the regulation of neighbors feeding neighbors.
