Movie Screening February 11th: Betting The Farm

The Eugene Lang Entrepreneurship Center at Columbia Business School and The School of International and Public Affairs invite you to a movie screening
about small business, the entrepreneurial spirit, and Maine dairy farmers.

“Betting The Farm,” a film by Cecily Pingree and Jason Mann.

Betting The Farm is the story of a group of Maine dairy farmers who -- dropped by their national milk company -- are suddenly confronted with the real possibility of losing their farms. Banding together, the farmers launch their own small business: Maine’s Own Organic Milk.

Farmers Vaughn Chase, Richard Lary, and Aaron Bell -- along with their families -- struggle to make ends meet as they get the company off the ground. But faced with slow sales and mounting bills, can the farmers hang together long enough for the gamble to pay off? Or will they be left worse off than before?


Innovation and Entrepreneurship @ Columbia provides a platform to develop new ideas by leveraging the cross-functional capabilities and knowledge of the University at large.
