Bring your family and friends and join us at the BCC Leland Campus at 6:30 p.m. for a showing of “Farmland”, a documentary highlighting six young farmers taking over the family farm or starting a new farm and the challenges they face in the process. Following the documentary will be a discussion panel made up of four local farmers who will answer questions and share about their own personal experiences in Brunswick County.
