    The film presents the real life of a young farmer who chose to manage the old family farm in a modern way with the support of the EAFRD. The story presents the farm in a ‘then and now’ way highlighting the young farmer’s vision about agriculture and its place in the economy and in the community. Day to day work at the farm is presented with no make-up, seasoned with batches of time dedicated to the family and to helping the community teenagers understand what truly farming means. The film brings in focus images related to the use of modern technology as well – either biogas equipment or ICT as managerial support.
