Picture a farmer – a Documentary
Picture a Farmer is a documentary that challenges the conventional perceptions of women’s roles on the farm.
Women have always been a critical part of farm life, yet they are often not seen as farmers. Women on farms raise children, cook meals, maybe tend to a garden. But they also do so much more: From driving the tractors and combines to tending the animals, fixing equipment, and toiling in the office noting yields and prices and ensuring the business runs efficiently.
They are farmers.
Picture a Farmer follows three farmers in Alberta who are taking ownership of the title farmer; shedding light on women in agriculture and fostering representation for future generations.

Sue’s passion has always been the livestock side of the industry and She sees no reason why women shouldn’t be farmers in their own right. And if they’re lucky, they will be happy farming for years to come.

Kristin never thought she would be a farmer… until 3 years ago when she quit her full-time city job to start her own Community Supported Agriculture farm – Fifth Gen Gardens – and help her dad on their family’s grain and trout farm. Kristin has learned a lot about the challenges and rewards of being a farmer and is excited to have found her passion.
