DREAMING OF A VETTER WORLD
The compelling 77-minute documentary “Dreaming of a Vetter World” comes at a time when interest in organic farming and regenerating soil has exploded worldwide. Others are realizing what the Vetters have known for decades: soil is key to our very survival.
The film focuses on the story of the Vetter family, pioneering organic farmers in Marquette, Nebraska. Shot, directed, edited, and narrated by first-time filmmaker Bonnie Hawthorne, the documentary tells the story of the Vetter family’s decades-long experiment with a self-renewing farm management system. It is also a story about place, hope, and love; an inspiring example of perseverance and doing what you know is right, against all odds.
Beautifully shot on location in Hamilton County, Nebraska, this engaging documentary shows what farming with nature is all about. At the heart of this powerful story is David Vetter’s journey from farmer’s son, to missionary, to scientist, and back to farmer again, where he practices what he calls a "ministry to the soil." The film also includes interviews with other organic leaders Fred Kirschenmann, David’s father Donald, and others.
