Ep 094 The Holstein Dilemma: It’s a Wonderful Life

We’ve been waiting four years to say it:  We’re done. Well, “done” once the technical, legal and distribution people have their say, but we’ll be handing it over to them within the next two weeks.  We’ll make sure to keep you posted on how to see the film in the upcoming months.  We’d like to thank you, our audience, for sticking with us here at Backyard Green Films, and for sharing the journey with us on this road.But as we wrap up this film and start to think about what might be on the road ahead, we want to say a special thank you this Christmas to the people who allowed us into their lives, and shared their stories with us.  The real stars of our Wonderful Life are the farmers, ranchers, scientists, veterinarians, fiber producers, breeders, butchers, and everyone else having to do with the creation, nurturing, and distribution of agricultural products that we love to talk about.  As we’ve learned on a planetary scale in this tumultuous year, we need everyone the agricultural supply chain, and need them desperately.  It’s often a thankless responsibility, but always a critical one.  In the words of Clarence the angel, in one of our favorite movies, “Strange, isn’t it?  Each man’s life touches so many other lives.  And when he isn’t around he leaves and awful hole, doesn’t he?”Go watch the movie, please.  It’s a Wonderful Life.  And it’s truly wonderful because you shared yours with us.Links:https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0038650/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1 https://parade.com/1105524/alexandra-hurtado/its-a-wonderful-life-quotes/https://backyardgreenfilms.com/ https://backyardgreenfilms.com/the-holstein-dilemma/Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/agriCulturePodcast)
