This week’s featured video was produced by US Farmers and Ranchers Alliance (USFRA) to promote a new campaign. Today’s farmers have to feed an ever growing population with less land and even greater challenges caused by climate change. The title 30 Harvests refers to the number growing seasons left before 2050, when the global population is expected to reach 10 billion people.
Today farmers face the largest challenge of this generation – creating sustainable food systems and solving climate change. And they only have 30 harvests until 2050 to do it. The docudrama follows the plight of farmer Jay Hill of Dell City, Texas, and farmer and soil scientist Meagan Kaiser of Bowling Green, Missouri. In this film, they articulate the challenges farmers face while embracing the opportunity to meet the increasing demands to create sustainable food systems through the next 30 harvests, and ultimately help solve the greatest challenge of this generation: climate change. This film is inspired by true events in the lives of farmers Jay Hill and Meagan Kaiser. USFRA
