Academy Award-winning filmmaker James Moll’s feature-length documentary, FARMLAND, is now available on DVD at Walmart and Walmart.com. The availability of the documentary at retail locations across the country and online provides another opportunity for viewers to experience the film, which offers a firsthand glimpse inside the world of farming by showcasing the lives of six young farmers and ranchers in their twenties. Illinois Corn is a member of U.S. Farmers and Ranchers Alliance, the folks that put FARMLAND together. Look for IL Corn to be bringing FARMLAND to a community college near you for a public showing later this year. We also have loaner copies of the DVD available at our office.

"I'm thrilled by how wide the distribution has been for Farmland." said Moll. "There's a lot of interest out there in the lives of young farmers and ranchers. It is a fascinating topic and I'm glad that there's such a demand for the film on DVD and online."
