Synopsis: The Greenhorns is a film about the spirit, practices and needs of young farmers. It is about their motivation, the barriers they face, and the structural aspirations they hold for a more regional, more sustainable, more equitable food system. Today's young farmers are dynamic entrepreneurs, stewards of place. They are involved in local politics, partnering with others, inventing new social institutions, working with mentors, starting their careers as apprentices, borrowing money from the bank, putting in long hours, taking risks, innovating, experimenting. Farming with horses, with hacked tractors, with forgotten urban lots and Appalachian coal country. These young farmers have vision: a prosperous, satisfying, sustainable food system. It is ambitious and it will take work, but it won't be boring.
