"To Make A Farm" interesting and well done documentary by filmmaker Steve Suderman - worth a watch for small farm new farmers

Starting a farm from scratch takes more than just imagination. Often considered a way of life from the past, today there's a movement of young people without farming backgrounds taking up this challenging profession. To Make A Farm follows the lives of five such young people through their first seasons on the land, as the joys and disappointments of bringing life from the earth become a quiet manifesto for social change. Along the way, filmmaker Steve Suderman explores his own family history in farming and wonders if the mistakes of the past can be avoided.
