Cincinnati's last farm, the historic Gorman Heritage Farm. Documenting the farm's history and Cincinnati's agricultural history.

About this project

We are raising funds to produce a documentary detailing the history of Cincinnati's last surviving farm and bring to the discussion some contemporary challenges facing America's farmers. As of this date, the historical research is complete, a collection of historic images and photographs have already been compiled. The director and co-writer, Matt Yagle, a historian has already successfully nominated the farm for the National Register of Historic Places. The film makers have many connections of local historians and scholars who are willing to be interviewed and filmed.  Also, a treatment has been written. All of our sources are local and within a half-hour's drive, the material we need is very attainable we just need a little financial boost to make it all a reality.  Any extra money will be invested into equipment after that the rest will be donated to the Gorman Heritage Farm.

Risks and challenges

At this time we don't can't forsee any significant obstacles due to the fact that everything from our filming locations to those we need to interview are local. One apparent obstacle is that we have jobs and families so sometimes our availability doesn't always match. We may need some technical assistance when we encounter a technical issue with editing however we both have connections to professionals who would help us do this for free.
