De Boer Op

The big dream of almost every farmer is to pass the family land to their own child. But dreams and reality often turn out to be two different things, because every generation the number of farms halves. What hurdles need to be overcome by farmers to make this dream come true? How is it possible to maintain a business in a time when less farms produce more and consumers are becoming increasingly critical. And what is best for the family? When a farm is taken over, all of these questions have to be answered by the new and old generation together.

In the documentary De Boer On the talented young filmmaker Sanne Rovers sits down at kitchen table conversations between an agricultural business consultant and farmer families who are in the middle of an, often complex, takeover process.
