“If there is one person who embodies how far organic farming and food have come, it is David Vetter. An organic farmer in Marquette, Nebraska for more than 40 years, Vetter grew organic when few people were. He started with a spiritual commitment to being a good steward of the land, to making his soil healthy and fertile, and to growing organic crops and livestock without agricultural chemicals. He succeeded. His business, Grain Place Foods, is a thriving organic grain processor.
“David Vetter’s journey as an organic farmer is told in an inspiring new documentary by filmmaker Bonnie Hawthorne, Dreaming of a Vetter World, whose executive producer is noted film actor Steve Buscemi.
“The film chronicles the history of the Vetters’ farm, starting with David’s father Don, who, concerned about the toxicity of agricultural chemicals, stopped using them in the early 1950s. “In 1953, I made up my mind that I wasn’t going to do this anymore,” Don says in the film.
“Dreaming of a Vetter World is a primer on regenerative agriculture for any farmer and the value of organic farming for everyone else. Mostly, it is an inspiring story of how one humble man succeeded against all odds, and made a positive difference in the world.” – The Organic and Non-GMO Report
