The Ivy League Farmer
The Ivy League Farmer offers a first-hand glimpse into the lives of a dairy farm family on the cusp of generational and technological change. It's also a love story that explores a small town's concern about local kids not getting enough to eat.
After graduating from Harvard and landing his dream job on Wall Street, 23 year-old Joel Gilbert returns to the heartland to spend one final summer at home on his family's dairy farm. While there, he quickly learns that the three-generation family farm is in trouble. Using the skills he gained with his Ivy League degree, Joel is now faced with the difficult task of confronting his strong-willed father and convincing the proud man to take the ultimate risk to save the farm. Joel also has another unexpected problem - he's falling in love with the girl of his dreams in the small town in which he grew up.
