Introduced by Steve Suderman
To Make A Farm is a beautifully photographed look at the lives of five young people (including Wes Huyghe from Minnedosa, Manitoba) who have decided to become small-scale farmers, despite having no backgrounds in this demanding profession. They face the daily challenges of unpredictable weather, vegetable devouring insects and balancing the books.
Sensing that agriculture had become an industry without a soul they strive for success whether producing fresh organic vegetables or doing positive things for the environment. Their optimism inspires hope for the future. Documentary filmmaker Steve Suderman searches his own family history in farming to question whether the mistakes of the past can be avoided this time around. He weaves together the three stories of this new wave in farming and how each individual is working hard to make it happen.
