When I hear the word “documentary,” rarely does “Oh, I must see that” come to mind. In fact, it’s usually the farthest thing from it. Last week, the trailer for a new documentary changed that for me.
It’s called Farmland and it’s a feature-length film by award-winning filmmaker James Moll, with support from the U.S. Farmers and Ranchers Alliance (USFRA).
You may recognize Moll’s name. He’s worked with Stephen Spielberg and Matt Damon on projects like Inheritance and The Last Days.
So what makes this documentary different from the rest?

There’s a nip in the air. Yes, I know it’s not much and many of us have yet to put away our summer sandals around here, but, according to the calendar, there should be one. So for today, let’s just pretend.
One of my favorite things about fall is the chance to eat a warm breakfast. I am a huge fan of anything hot for my morning meal. I can remember helping my mom make warm loaves of yummy breads to feed the three growing kids in the house. And though for some families this isn’t breakfast, it is certainly something everyone should know how to make. So, it seemed fitting to make it this month’s Back to Basics recipe.

Growing up on our farm, I spent most of my time outside and as far away from the kitchen as possible. Perfecting my mud pie recipe was the result of those years spent outside, while my kitchen skills remained practically nonexistent until a few months ago.
Sparked by the diversity of foods available in the city, I entered the grocery store with an open mind. I had heard of spaghetti squash and even tried it once, but I had never attempted to cook it myself.

So right now many of you are probably gearing up for Halloween festivities next week. We are, too! This week will be filled with last minute additions to the mermaid costumes my mother so lovingly put together for both “Butters” and my niece. We will also be decorating pumpkins and cooking some last minute sweets for parties.
While all of this is going on, the kitchen that I use for the Table Top blog is having some touch-ups done. So instead of making a totally rockin’ Halloween recipe for you this week, I thought I would share a few of my fall favorites from the Table Top vault, as well as from some of my favorite Texas bloggers.

Milk comes from a cow, a loaf of bread starts in the field and farmers work every day.
Agritourism–the intersection between agriculture and tourism–is a growing trend fueled by you, the consumer, having an interest in learning more about the food you eat. There are agritourism locations across the state–farms and ranches that offer tours, corn mazes, wineries and more–just waiting for visitors.
The allure of the farm remains strong and the fall season offers many opportunities to dive into outdoor activities. Hay rides, picking the perfect pumpkin, fishing and strolling through the fields are just some of the fall attractions of life on a farm. And if that’s not enough, friendly farm animals are ready to greet those who visit.
