FMTV - The Organic Life

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

This movie is so inspiring, wouldn't it be amazing if it could be shown in our schools to help educate our up and coming generation. I have just started a small edible garden in our back yard & although on a much smaller scale I certainly could relate to that feeling of picking the food that you have watched grow and then seeing it on your plate, or in your smoothies. It's definitely something that helps with the connection I have to my food and the beauty of nature and what we can create.

What a beautiful documentary! The filming was fantastic and the subject matter so imperative for right now. I hope Casey and Austin will make another film in the future years, whether or not they have any young Casey and Austin's getting dirty.

We loved this documentary. It is inspiring us to grow our own Food. Staying healthy. We appriciate the commitment and love that you both radiate for mother earth. It brought tears to our eyes.
Casey is an excellent film maker and the film shows the life of them. Being a farmer is hard and rewarding work that the food for our bodies is healthy and feeds us on different levels we need nourishment for the phhysical body but also the emotional and spiritual body. The way the food is grown impact enormously the way it nourishes us in all the bodies. It is so important to honor this!
