*family to farm

Some say you're born into it.
Some say it's in your blood.
But when you grow up here, this is your home.
And even if you leave, this is where you belong.
I grew up on a farm not far from the perimeter of Winnipeg. It is, and always will be, my home. 

Not many people understand farming, let alone what family farming is really all about. I remember going to high school with people who thought cow-tipping was real and that my house couldn't possibly have electricity. I remember wanting to show them what farming really was. I wanted to shown them that it was more than a bunch of country folk who wore a lot of plaid. 

In 2012, I had the opportunity to do just that. My family farm was in the beginning stages of transition: my dad was sick and my brothers had to decide if they wanted to take over the farm.

Family to Farm 
not only captures the transition of the family farm (a challenging decision that many farms are facing right now in Canada), but the heart of what makes a family farm. It shows the beauty of the prairies, the struggles of doing what you love even when it comes at a cost, and the joy of a hard days work. It is my love-letter to my farming home, and to the family that makes it the place where I belong.

Family to Farm is coming home... literally. After its initial screening in Winnipeg, my documentary is going to be shown in the place it was created.
