In collaboration with Land Stewardship Project, Sustainable Farming Association’s Crow River Chapter presents a Fall Social as another in their ongoing series of Farmer-to-Farmer Networking events. The evening will feature the Minnesota premiere of the new film, “Look & See: A Portrait of Wendell Berry“, and will bring together new and established farmers for a time of community and networking.
“Look & See” is a visually stunning ode to a changing cultural landscape as imagined through the eyes of Wendell Berry, one of the foremost living American writers and poets, and author of the seminal “The Unsettling of America”. In 1965, Berry returned home to Henry County, Kentucky, where he began a life of farming, writing and teaching. This lifelong relationship with the land and community would come to form the core of his prolific work. A half century later Henry County, like many rural communities across America, has become a place of quiet ideological struggle.
LOOK & SEE revolves around the divergent stories of several residents of Henry County, Kentucky who each face difficult choices that will dramatically reshape their relationship with the land and their community.
“Look & See”, co-produced by Robert Redford, was a Spotlight Selection film at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival, won a Special Jury Award at the SXSW Film Festival in 2016, and took top honors at the Nashville Film Festival and Environmental Film Festival in the Nation’s Capital.
This first public showing of this film in Minnesota takes place at York Farm in Hutchinson. A social hour begins at 6:00 p.m. with snacks and beverages, followed by the film screening at 7:00 p.m.
After the film, desserts will accompany an open discussion about the movie.
The event will be in the renovated barn at York farm: come prepared for cool temperatures! Blankets, jackets – think of it as an outdoor fall event.
And there will be food and coffee!
Before and During Film Snacks: Homemade Chex Mix, Three-Cheese and Cracker Tray, Black Bean Salsa, Mexican Spinach Dip w/Tortilla Chips.
After: Apple Crisp with Whipped Cream
Coffee, Strawberry/Basil Lemonade and Ice Water throughout.

Crow River Chapter Description
Encompassing an incredibly diverse part of the state that includes the Twin Cities and the rural counties to their west, Crow River offers opportunites for farmers, sustainable farming supporters and consumers to participate in a vital and active organization. We represent not only the more “traditional” farmers – dairy, grains, etc. – but also a wide range of thriving specialty and niche market farmers: CSAs, goats, sheep, poultry, herbs, garlic, restaurant and co-op produce, etc. We have an emphasis on education in sustainable practices and an impressive roster of events, including farm tours, the Annual Crow River Chapter Annual Meeting, the Minnesota Garlic Festival, and the popular “farm social” gatherings.
