"Five Farms" Series Begins 6pm, Wednesday June 30 On "Common Ground"

Most Americans know little about where their food comes from - and even less about the lives of farm families who plant, water, feed, herd, harvest and deliver that food to market.

The PRI series "Five Farms: Stories From American Farm Families" is comprised of five one-hour documentaries using first-person storytelling to personalize the lives and work of five farm families in New England, the South, the Midwest, the Southwest and West Coast. "Five Farms" follows these families for a year, revealing the resiliency of American farmers, documenting how they feed the nation, and how they conserve land and resources.

Join host Bill the Big Dog as he introduces each episode of this powerful series which helps listeners make the connection between the food on their tables and the families who produce it.
