Win Two Tickets to the See the Farmland Movie on May 1st - South Austin

Drop your plans for next Thursday, May 1st in the evening if you already have them!  Come spend some quality time with fellow agriculture-minded individuals and appreciate our next generation of farmers and ranchers.  The U.S. Farmers and Ranchers Alliance has created a documentary called "Farmland".  It is a first-hand glimpse in the life of young farmers and ranchers across the nation and includes a Texas rancher from Throckmorton!  Below is the information for the Austin viewing:

AUSTIN: May 1 at 7 p.m.
Regional Metropolitan Stadium 14
901 Little Texas Lane
Austin, Texas 78745

Quote from :
 " Most Americans have never stepped foot on a farm or ranch or even talked to the people who grow and raise the food we eat. Farmland will take an intimate look at the lives of farmers and ranchers in their ‘20s, all of whom are now responsible for running their farming business.
Through this film from award-winning director, James Moll, you’ll step inside the world of farming for a first-hand glimpse into the lives of young farmers and ranchers. Learn about their high-risk/high reward jobs and passion for a way of life that has been passed down from generation to generation, yet continues to evolve.
Director James Moll traveled across the country meeting young farmers and ranchers. Watch the trailer to catch a glimpse of stories shared during his interviews. This film will be released in Spring 2014.
This film was made with the generous support of the U.S. Farmers & Ranchers Alliance ®. "
