Free Movie Night "Forgotten Farms"

  • Wednesday, July 11, 2018, 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Join us for the July meeting of PUGs (Progressive Ulster Graziers)*, where we will watch the movie “Forgotten Farms”, an award-winning documentary about the struggles faced by small dairies in the northeastern United States, focusing on 16 dairy farmers. 

We invite you to join us for this compelling film.  For a printable flyer click here.

Forgotten Farms “gives us a glimpse into the past and a vision for a future regional food system” and “shows the cultural divide between the new food movement and traditional farming, highlighting the need to examine differences, develop mutual understanding, and find common ground.” - www.forgottenfarms.org.

We will also host a guest speaker to answer questions about the intricacies of dairying in the 21st century.

For more information on the film, visit forgottenfarms.org.

This event is free and open to the public, but pre-registration is required by July 6. Contact Jason at jbd222@cornell.edu or 845-340-3990 x327.
