From Vittles, the production company behind this gorgeous trailer:  “Alex Sutton is a combat veteran with six tours in Afghanistan and Iraq. In 2008 an IED explosion ended his military service and destroyed his legs. Back home in North Carolina, medically discharged and standing on new titanium legs, Alex still possesses a strong desire to serve his country. He believes that he can do this best through farming.”

The Farmer Veteran Project is a work-in-progress documentary and the filmmakers are raising funds through Kickstarter (their campaign ends Tuesday, July 17).
