age of the farmer

Leave a comment

65 is the average age of farmers in Canada, and there are not enough young farmers to replace them… How did we get here? In the summer of 2015, Eva Verbeeck and Spencer MacDonald embarked on a trip throughout the Pacific Northwest to produce a short film on young farmers that would accompany her photo story for a variety of publications. This film is an attempt to express some of the thoughts and feelings of the young farmers they stayed with. Hopefully a little bit of justice was done for all the young farmers out there.
