The Organic Life

Runtime: 60m 18s | Release date: 2013

The Organic Life is a year-long chronicle of life on the farm. The film shows not only who grows your food, but also how it is grown.

We’ve all seen the end product at farmer’s markets, grocery stores, and restaurants; however, rarely do we think about what actually transpires in the 200-some days it takes your local farmer to produce that heirloom tomato. The film focuses on one young farmer, filmmaker Casey Beck’s boyfriend, Austin Blair, and tells their story, thus allowing the viewer to delve into this issue and experience, over the course of one hour, the low points and ultimately the joys that surface over a year of farming.

It’s a story that’s filled with sweat, blisters, sun, and rain, as well as a compelling passion for life, food, and the earth which seems unique to farmers. The film questions the financial future of these young people. However, as it shows one such farmer’s 21st-century approach, it demonstrates that this can be a viable and fulfilling profession. In this way, The Organic Life is a look at sustainable farming-not merely how the farm itself is viable, but also how the farm sustains its keepers.

Featuring:
Austin Blair
