The Family Farmer is an interactive documentary game accompanying the feature length film The Family Farm, by director Ari Cohen. The game challenges visitors to create and manage their own virtual farm, raising awareness to the large and small issues specific to family farms, of which there are fewer and fewer in Canada. The game presents the daily reality of farmers by addressing topics such as crop selection, pollution, financing and food distribution in a fun and simple interface.
