Equipping farmers to build resilient farms and communities.
Join Practical Farmers of Iowa for free outdoor screenings and panel discussions of “Livestock on the Land,” our feature-length documentary that tells the story of regenerative grazing and its promise for the Iowa landscape. Following the film, the audience can ask questions and hear from a panel of farmers featured in the film.
Join Air on a tour of his very diverse farm. Originally from Laos, Air settled in Iowa and purchased a farm in Warren County in 2010. Over the last decade, he's built his operation from scratch, raising diversified livestock and horticulture crops on 11 acres. A self-described "Laotian cowboy," Air will showcase his Muscovy ducks, goats, veggie garden and livestock guardian dogs. His products are sold to immigrant communities around Des Moines. Following the farm tour, a meal will be shared and music will be played on his newly constructed stage.
