According to the production company, Allentown Productions, Farmland offers viewers an "intimate and firsthand glimpse" into the lives of six young farmers and ranchers across the U.S., chronicling their high-risk/high-reward jobs and their passion for a way of life that has been passed down from generation to generation, yet continues to evolve.

"In Farmland, audiences will hear thoughts and opinions about agriculture, but not from me, and not from a narrator," filmmaker James Moll says about the film. "They're from the mouths of the farmers and ranchers themselves."

The farm documentary features an original score composed by Nathan Wang with the City of Prague Philharmonic Orchestra. The Farmland film also includes an original recording of "This Land is Your Land" performed in a first-ever collaboration with platinum rock band Everclear and Grammy Award-nominated artist Liz Phair.
