Farmers Stand with OWS

Gerritsen

Think Occupy Wall Street is a bunch of hipsters? Our latest film took us to the Occupy Wall Street Farmers March, in which farmers from around the country came to show their support for the movement that one farmer called “the conscience of America.” In this short, produced for Iowa-based Food Democracy Now!, we tell the story of Jim Gerritsen, an organic potato farmer from the far reaches of northern Maine.
