Seasons of Change on Henry’s Farm: Surrounded by GMO-heavy industrial farms in Central Illinois, for a quarter-century Henry Brockman has successfully operated a small family vegetable farm based on principles of organic cultivation and biodiversity. But farming takes a toll on his aging body and Henry dreams of scaling back. While his former apprentices run the farm, Henry spends a "fallow year" with his wife Hiroko in Japan. But things don't turn out as planned, and Henry must grapple with the future of farming in a changing climate on personal, generational, and global levels.
