"a film that defies your expectations at every turn. Alex is one of the most remarkable subjects I've seen in a doc in the last few years.” — Daniel Laabs, Dallas International Film Festival


Farmer/Veteran is a documentary film about trauma, truth and the search for a new identity in the wake of war. 




Our primary goal for this film is to connect more veterans and their families into support services. We also believe that agriculture can be a viable, holistic occupation for veterans with adequate support  and training from a larger community. The following organizations and campaigns share these goals and provide excellent service and support.

If you are a veteran or family member seeking immediate and confidential help, please contact the Veterans Crisis Line
