The Careful Farmer

“Farming: A life, full of risk, responsibility, and reward”

From the filmmaker:

The Careful Farmer documents Flying Plow Farm in Bel Air, MD and its owners, Tom and Sarah Paduano. As an outreach to consumers and producers, who’s relationship has diminished with the ongoing expansion of industrial farming, The Careful Farmer brings to light a vision of modern American farming.

The only certified organic farm in Harford County, Flying Plow offers the surrounding suburban community an alternative food source. In this project, I aim to convey the wholehearted and deep commitment Tom and Sarah have made to farming and the lifestyle it entails.

From my own experience with them, I show that for Tom and Sarah farming is not an occupation, but a life, full of risk, responsibility and reward. In showing this I hope to reconnect the roots between consumers and producers causing us all to think more about what and who it takes to satiate our hunger.
