Ahead of the national premiere of Farmers for America, Lem Lewis interviews filmmaker Graham Meriwether about the documentary that aims to celebrate and inspire the next generation of American farmers and ranchers.
Farmers for America profiles 20 extraordinary American farmers – large and small, organic and conventional – who are using American ingenuity and pluck to overcome the many, many obstacles that confront them daily.
To serve as the film’s narrator, Meriwether was able to recruit Mike Rowe – the talent behind Dirty Jobs and Facebook’s Returning the Favor.
Meriwether worked on Farmers for America for more than four years, crisscrossing the country to showcase the farmers featured in the film.
As founder of Leave It Better Media, Meriwether’s mission is to “share stories of spiritual, economic and environmental healing.”
The national premiere will take place in Indianapolis, IN, followed by a panel discussion featuring local farmers. Meriwether is looking to rural producers and others who support American farmers and ranchers to host screening of the film in their communities.

“Anyone who lives in Texas for more than three months adopts that Texas pride,” Dan says.
