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.
Danelle Myer has farmed vegetables since 2010 outside her hometown of Logan, Iowa. The addition of a brick-and-mortar store in late 2020 changed how she thinks about local food and community connection. What started as a temporary holiday pop-up venture has transitioned to a full-on local foods store with products from all over Iowa including eggs, meat and dairy.
