Media inquiries to Hilary Kirwan:  


The program also includes a sneak preview of the acclaimed new Discovery documentary film Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman, followed by a Q&A with film producer and book author Miriam Horn.



A hit at the Sundance Film Festival this year, Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman tells the inspiring story of heartland heroes who are feeding the world while stewarding natural resources. The film is a tribute to people like Justin Knopf, a fifth-generation Kansas commodity grower revolutionizing agriculture to rebuild the fertility, biodiversity, and resilience of his soils and protect downstream waters from pollution. Knopf is making long-term investments to ensure that the next generations of farmers will inherit productive lands.

Based on the book by Miriam Horn, the film was directed by Oscar nominee and Emmy winner Susan Froemke and Emmy winner John Hoffman. 

Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman will be broadcast August 31 on Discovery.
