Age of the Farmer
With the average age of farmers in North America approaching 60, what does this mean for the future of our food? We made this short documentary to provide a voice to the young farmers who represent the future of our sustainable agricultural system.

A highlight reel we assembled from our journey to Antarctica with Lindblad Expeditions/National Geographic. During our tenure with the company, we produced, filmed and edited over 30 nature documentaries in various locations around the world.
We created this video for Skyberry Farm’s Kickstarter project which launched May 9, 2015. The projecet successfuly raised over $33,000 to build a Bed & Breakfast, which will fund the farm, allowing them to donate all of their food to local hunger relief organizations in Oregon.
This project was Staff Picked by Kickstarter and featured on many local and national media outlets. All aerial footage by our friends at Red Lab Films.
“Since the beginning of time, hemp is the only plant that can feed you, house you, clothe you and heal you.”
This is second short video that we produced and shot for National Geographic. In it we tell the story of how the legalization of marijuana in Oregon is beginning to revive the hemp industry, and creating perhaps the most environmentally sustainable building material yet: hempcrete.
A short video that we produced and shot for National Geographic. In it we tell the story of how unmanned aerial vehicles or UAVS, are reshaping the world of precision agriculture.
“The age of the farmer is dwindling, but a lot of people are catching back onto it.”
Skyberry Farm is a local organic farm that was founded as way to create a community space centered around sustainable practices and nutritious food. They wanted a video that could be used not only as promotional material to attract new CSA shareholders, volunteers and donors, but also as a way to show the substance and immaterial wealth that comes when we return to our roots and engage in the timeless activity of farming.
This short film is still featured on the homepage of WWOOF USA and as a result Skyberry Farm has gained widespread recognition.
