Two Blades of Grass: Video About The Next Generation Farming

Two Blades of Grass from Lara Stephenson on Vimeo.

Graham Burgess is a 29-year-old dairy farmer who describes himself as a “real outdoorsman” but with a “refined taste for expensive cocktails.” He works and lives on his parents’ farm in New Mills, Greater Manchester, is passionate about his job and confident about his future in farming. His father, George, is a more traditional farmer, in a sense, but is more similar to his son than Graham seems to realize. This film explores succession, independence, security, and family through testimony as the two of them tell a story of their pasts and their projected futures.
