Slow Food Marathon County will be showing the charming documentary "To Make a Farm" on Tuesday evening, January 26. Join us as we watch these aspirational young farmers develop their CSA's and face seasonal challenges, reminiscent of the dedicated small scale farmers we have here in Central Wisconsin! We hope you can carve out some time to see this delightful film with us!
Named one of the ten most popular Canadian films at the Vancouver International Film Festival, To Make A Farm asks: what might the future of local food and farming look like? This beautifully photographed documentary explores the lives of five young people who have decided to become small-scale farmers. VIFF calls To Make A Farm “exceptionally hopeful, giving us a close-range view of humanity along with a detailed portrayal of the nuts and bolts of agriculture.”
Location: Universalist Unitarian Church, 504 Grant Street, Wausau
SFMC will provide a hearty winter soup, bread and salad. Please provide your own beverages and anything you'd like to share. Cost is $5 (free for children and students). RSVPs are required. Please email slowfoodwausau@yahoo to reserve your spot!
Following the film, several of our local farmers will talk about their own experiences in getting started here in central Wisconsin.
