Cornell Showing of Farmland

On Monday, October 27 the Cornell Cinema on campus showed the movie Farmland. This documentary follows the lives of farmers and ranchers in their 20's who are all responsible for running their farming business. Taking viewers directly inside the world of young farmers, this is a great movie for those who do not know much about the people who grow their food. Back in September, when we held our Beef-A-Polouza event in association with the Beef Checkoff, we promoted the viewing of Farmland to ...

With all these pumpkins we were able to spend the rest of the afternoon in the front yard carving to our hearts content. A few pumpkins were carved as traditional ...
