A Farmer’s Road Film Screenings

We have amazing members here at Illinois Stewardship Alliance doing amazing things across the state. Wes Jarrel and Leslie Cooperband of Prairie Fruits Farm and Creamery are no exception, and recently, they’ve had a documentary made about their farm journey! A Farmer’s Road tells the story of how two Ph.D. soil scientists  traded the security of academic tenure for the relentless challenges and economic uncertainty of operating a Grade A goat dairy and farmstead creamery in central Illinois. Surrounded by commodity-based agribusiness, they strive to embody the core principles of sustainability, showcasing artisan goat-milk products during slow-food dinners on the farm. Their mission to educate the public about locally sourced small-farm diversity is literally changing the American food system one meal at a time.


January 30th Screening at the Slow Food Springfield Film Festival
