I'm very excited to let you know that you can watch Farmland the movie for free on Hulu right now. This is a film I was able to prescreen at some conferences at the beginning of the year. I could tell it was going to be good even in the raw stages. This film produced by James Moll follows young farmers in the up and downs of farming. These 20-30 year old farmers show how it really is. The film footage is really good. He did a good job in choosing a variety of farming practices: conventional practices, organic practices and livestock from across the country. These farmers also tackle some of the issues facing farming today. I can't speak enough about how great this movie is. Please take time to watch this movie; it's just over an hour long and it's free. You won't regret it. Let me know if you watched it and what you think or if it sparks some questions I can answer.

Here's quick recipe for Apples and Porkchops. This recipe is really flexible for size. I also have a problem of not measuring sometimes so I'll just tell you what I did and hope you can repeat.
4-6 pork chops
I put 6 pork chops on the bottom of the casserole dish.
Then poured on the apples. I have apples frozen in bags so it's a matter of dumping them out.
I mixed up some brown sugar and cinnamon to sprinkle on top. Now I'm not sure how much I used it's mostly brown sugar (1/4 cup) and a dash or two of cinnamon (1/2 tsp.).
Lastly a few pats of butter on top.
COVER and Bake 350 degrees for 1-1.5 hours.

The corn crop is better than expected and we are running out of storage space. This is a good problem to have; so we are quickly building a new grain bin to store the corn.
