Film: "Goranson Farm: An Uncertain Harvest" Oct. 17In the 1980s, first-generation college graduate Jan Goranson returned to Maine to run the family farm upon her father's death. Over the course of 25 years, she and her family built the farm into an active organic farm serving the Midcoast.

The film follows Goranson and her husband Rob Johanson, their two sons, and their crew through the 2009 growing season, as they struggle first against the rainiest June on record, then with a potato blight that threatens to destroy their entire crop.

Goranson Farm: An Uncertain Harvest was an official selection at the Camden International Film Festival.
