Fighting a roller coaster economy, Iowa farmers the Swansons struggle to achieve their dream of farming together as one extended family. Along the way, we meet a cast of determined and individualistic characters – from hog farmers to local vegetable growers – all bent on making a living from the land. Through the lens of one family, FIELD WORK: A FAMILY FARM explores where the American family farm is headed in the twenty-first century.
