Join us to view this 17 minute documentary film which examines the issue of affordable farmland on the East End and the Trust’s Farms for the Future Initiative.

The film tells the stories of several farmers who are leasing land either owned or managed by the Trust in the face of ever-increasing pressure from development.

Produced and directed by Michael Halsband and Hilary Leff, the film won the Audience Choice Award at the 2012 Hamptons International Film Festival.

Panelists include the film's director Michael Halsband, local farmers Fred Lee of Sang Lee Farms, and Greg Kessler of The Hoppy Acre, as well as the Trust's Senior Manager of Agricultural Programs Dan Heston. Refreshments provided.
