What do you see when you think about farming in Utah? Expansive fields of monocrops? Grant Wood’s famous painting, American Gothic?
Jack Wilbur, in conjunction with the Utah Fruit and Vegetable Association has produced a short vignette that looks at what it means to be an urban farmer in Northern Utah.
Come for a screening of the film short and listen to the featured farmers speak about their motivations for farming here in Utah, the obstacles they’ve encountered, and the rewards they’ve gained.
