Gunder-friend Productions


"Growing against the Grain" is a 30-minute video about farmers in Audubon County, Iowa, who are working to build healthy food systems and farms, put the culture back in agriculture, and restore a lost spirit to their communities. They are doing this through sustainable farming practices and direct marketing their products to the consumer. 

It was produced by Helen D. Gunderson of Gunder-friend Productions for the Audubon County Family Farms with support from the Leopold Center for Sustainable Agriculture and Practical Farmers of Iowa. You may view it in three parts via YouTube or as a whole with Windows Media Player software.
