THE WORLD IN 30 MINUTES

A Townie on a Farm

30'
Nowadays, farmers are faced with the threat of losing their lands and the fear of becoming obsolete

We accompany Donya, who has left the comfort of her town-life to spend a week working on a farm. The Kaiser family has graciously open their homes and heart to the visit and are excited to show her their way of life. Getting up before dawn to milk the cows and constantly working all day is the basis of farm life but it doesn’t end there. Living and working together with the whole family can be quite difficult but it teaches out little townie the merits of hard work and builds work ethic.

Getting up before dawn to milk the cows and constantly working all day is the basis of farm life but it doesn’t end there. Living and working together with the whole family can be quite difficult but it teaches out little townie the merits of hard work and builds work ethic. These families constantly live under the threat of their way of life being superseded by larger industries and the fear of losing their land. So what is it that compels one to invest so much time and energy into maintaining a farm? Let us find out together.
