Description: The Great American Wheat Harvest
The Great American Wheat Harvest is a documentary film that tells the story of hard-working families who spend each summer travelling from Texas to the Canadian border and beyond, harvesting thousands of acres of wheat. They take risks most of us wouldn’t dream of taking so that all of us have an abundance of food on our tables. Battling high fuel prices, labor shortages, extreme weather, severe drought, and occasionally a fire, these harvesting crews wouldn’t dream of doing anything else, because they know they are harvesting the wheat that feeds the world.
Filmed between 2011 and 2013 in eleven states and one Canadian province, the documentary features a total of five diverse harvesting crews and showcases some of the most beautiful harvest scenery found in North America.
