“Worried about the survival of small farmers, ranchers, and chefs hobbled by America’s policy of producing cheap food, trailblazing food writer Ruth Reichl reaches across political and social divides to report on the country’s broken food system and the innovators risking everything to transform it.” Directed by Laura Gabbert.

About the Farm:
3 Springs Land and Livestock, based in Oakley, UT creates resilient landscapes and healthy food by holistically managing cattle and meat chickens on pasture.
Prior to the films, guests are invited to attend a tour of the farm operation to learn how they create resilient landscapes and healthy food by holistically managing cattle and meat chickens on pasture.
Visit the 3-acre chicken operation and learn how soil health principles guide their pasture strategies. Mitch will demonstrate ways to measure soil health and how healthy soil creates healthy food and communities. Guests will be able to purchase farm products at this event, and to support farm operations.

About the Food:
Preordered picnic packages will be available to enjoy during the screening! Snail of Approval awardee, Chef Adam Kreisel of Chaia Cucina, in partnership with 3 Springs Land & Livestock, has created a wonderful meal to highlight the local harvest.
Slow Food Snail of Approval is a recognition given to food and beverage establishments that are pursuing and practicing Slow Food values in their business: restaurants, farms, ranches, fisheries, cafes, bars, food trucks, breweries, wineries, caterers, value-added food producers. This is a nationwide program and an amazing resource to use when traveling or searching locally for businesses that embrace and incorporate Slow Food values.
Snail of Approval designation is determined by local chapters based on evaluations focused on the following six areas: Sourcing, Environmental Impact, Cultural Connection, Community Involvement, Staff Support and Business Values.
About our Partners:
Utah’s Own is a program of the Utah Department of Agriculture that supports our local food economy by connecting consumers with local farmers, ranchers, food artisans and other agricultural producers.
Utah’s Own is a great resource to find local producers and information on the 49 farmers markets we have throughout the state! And, the first 100 guests at the film will receive a very cool Utah’s Own tote bag to use on their shopping adventures.
