Root Hog or Die
Unearth the Roots of Today’s Local Agriculture
Please join us for a showing of the recently remastered classic 1973 film directed by Rawn Fulton, Root Hog or Die, at the Academy of Music in Northampton. The film eloquently documents the simple and challenging lives of local farmers from 40 years ago, told in their own voices. You’ll come away feeling connected to a hard way of life that was also harmonious and rewarding.
After the screening, join us in a conversation about local ag efforts with present-day farmers: Cliff Hatch of Upinngil in Gill; David Fisher of Natural Roots in Conway; Chip Hager of Hager’s Farm in Shelburne; Sarah Voiland of Red Fire Farm in Granby; and Margaret Christie, CISA (Community Involved in Sustaining Agriculture) Special Projects Director.
Proceeds benefit five organizations committed to highlighting and working on issues relating to local agriculture and land conservation: WGBY, The Trustees of Reservations, CISA, Kestral Land Trust, and Hilltown Land Trust.
