If we have anything to do with it, our farm will be here for generations - Jeff Main
The Last Crop tells a personal tale of a family caught in the middle of a delicate interplay between urban and agricultural space in California’s Central Valley. Annie and Jeff Main own a 20-acre organic farm that serves the Sacramento/San Francisco communities. After 30 years of farming, however, they are finding it harder to remain viable in a rapidly changing environment. The film captures the intractable nature of sustaining a small family farm in contemporary California, the struggles farming families must face to keep their dream alive, and the difficulties involved with passing the land to the next generation. The Mains story offers viewers strong characters with a poignant point of view as they strive to sustain their love of the land, their dream, and for each other.
Sustainability is a big new catch phrase, but what does it mean... The true issue to me is sustaining farmers. Annie Main
