Cozette Russell, 40 min. 2013

Luke and Catarina Mahoney are young, first-generation farmers living their dream of running a biologically diverse farm and organic dairy in New Hampshire. As with many US first-generation farmers, they lease their land as they work to build a successful business but hardship strikes when they learn the lease on their farm will not be renewed.
