Free showing of the documentary film, Farmland, will be Monday, March 16 at the Lincoln Grand Cinema in downtown Lincoln. Farmland was directed by award winning director James Moll, which gives consumers a look into the day-to-day lives of several young farmers and ranchers.
David Loberg, a featured farmer in the film, will be at the theater to answer your questions. Loberg farms on his fifth-generation family farm near Carroll, Nebraska. He raises corn and soybeans, along with feeding 500 head of cows for a local dairy.
CommonGround Volunteer Leslie Boswell from Shickley, Nebraska will join Loberg to answer any questions you have about Nebraska farmers and how they produce your food. This event is presented by DuPont Pioneer, the Lancaster County Farm Bureau and the Nebraska Agribusiness Club.
The doors open at 6:30 p.m. Seating is limited to 250, so early arrival is encouraged. Admission is free, but event coordinators suggest a monetary donation or contribution of a non-perishable food item to benefit the Food Bank of Lincoln. Free snacks will be provided by the Nebraska Soybean Board, the Nebraska Corn Board, the Nebraska Pork Producers Association and the Nebraska Wheat Board.
