The GREAT AMERICAN WHEAT HARVEST is a documentary film that tells the story of hard-working custom harvesters who travel from the heart of Texas to the Canadian border harvesting the wheat that feeds our Great Country and the World.
The story is dramatic as well as inspiring. It’s compelling as it shares the challenges that are now threatening that way of life passed on from generation from generation. Much has changed and from a historical perspective. It is important to document the lifestyle and heritage before it is lost.
Americans takes for granted the way our food supply comes to us daily. How many folks truly understand how, where and what it takes to get that loaf of bread into the market shelves and on to the table? With rising industry costs, technological advances and production methods, new threats face our nation’s agricultural producers everyday directly impacting our nation’s supply.
