Forgotten Farms examines class divides in the Northeastern farm and food communities. In more affluent communities, farm-to-table restaurants, farmer's markets and CSAs are booming and the new farmers are celebrated. But there is another farmer who is left out of the local food celebration. New England has lost over 10,000 conventional dairy farms in the past 50 years; 2,000 farms remain. Collectively, they tend 1.2 million acres of farmland and produce almost all of the milk consumed in New England. Through conversations with dairy farmers and policy experts, the film reconsiders the role of these vital but forgotten farmers, who will be essential players in a regional food economy. By discussing the cultural divide between the new food movement and traditional farmers, the film highlights the need to address differences, develop mutual understanding, and bridge the gap. A truly sustainable local food system that benefits everyone will rely on all of our farmers.
