GROW! is a surprising and wondrous documentary of today's young farmers--where they have come from, why they are doing it, and the pure passion they are experiencing in their connection with the land and our food system.

"The stories that unfold in the documentary are definitely ones of love. Husband-and-wife team Jenny and Jack returned to Jenny’s family farm where she had grown up so that they could preserve the land and farm it in the right way. Similarly, Wes brought his wife Charlotte back to the farm where he grew up because he felt the tug of the seasons; when spring came around, he knew he should be planting, and both of them wanted to do it in a sustainable way. Others had gone to college for a variety of careers—medicine, accounting, chemistry and physics—but by different means had discovered their paths to the land and, in doing so, knew they’d found their callings.

In today’s world with its myriad economic problems, buying land, for many, is not an option. Hence a number of the farmers seen in GROW! have come up with other methods to be able to farm. The most common is taking over as farm managers, where the owners want to make sure the land continues to be used as God intended it. As observed by one of the landowners in the film, it’s a win-win situation for both owner and farmer."
