American Farmland Trust, Beekman 1802, and Culinary Institute of America Host Film Screening for Students

Farmers and chefs have a lot in common. Farmers grow food. Chefs prepare food. They are vital links in our food chain. American Farmland Trust, the Fabulous Beekman Boys and the Culinary Institute of America (CIA) are screening The First Season,  a powerful documentary film about dairy farming, to encourage thoughtful dialogue between CIA  students and a panel of dairy farmers,  cheese producers and dairy distributors about the future of dairy farming in New York and the role of farmland conservation in protecting the land necessary for the success of the dairy industry. The First Season, directed by Hollywood producer Rudd Simmons tells the story of the struggles of an upstate New York couple, to start their own dairy farm. The screening and panel discussion will be held on March 31 at the CIA in Hyde Park.
