"Broken Limbs is amazing, excellent, and on the mark...The entire group was enchanted by this film... the first half of ‘bad news’ was terrifically and delightfully offset by the second half of the film which focuses on solutions and alternatives to traditional style farming."
Michelle Frain, The Rodale Institute

“Broken Limbs will break your heart with its images of the sad plight of the independent American farmer being forced off the land by the global economic machine. But then, it will begin to heal your heart with its stories of new small scale farmers who are living well, low to the ground with a vision of a sustainable agricultural future.”
Sam Keen, filmmaker, author

“ Inspiring and powerful. … The film is cutting new ground in terms of where agriculture in this state, country and the world needs to go.”
Rev. Paul Benz, director, State Public Policy Office of Evangelical Lutheran Church

“What a profound result by a couple young filmmakers who were working on a shoestring … budget. ‘Broken Limbs’ is a powerful film that, using humor and drama, gives viewer a lot to think about in this increasingly globalized world we live in.”
Rufus Woods, editor and publisher, The Wenatchee World

"Broken Limbs can well serve to demonstrate that sustainable ag ‘socializes’ responsibility in the food system among all participants, while industrial ag ‘socializes’ environmental and community costs onto society but jealously retains responsibility only for financial rewards."
Brad Redlin, Center for Rural Affairs

“'Broken Limbs' is a very accurate and moving description of what is happening to agriculture in America. Focused on apple growers in Washington state, the story reflects what is happening to hog producers in Iowa, citrus growers in Florida and dairy farmers in New York. The video offers a ray of hope – the ‘new farmers’ who add value to their production and retain more of that value on the farm by producing the quality, attributes and services that a growing number of food customers want. A moving and compelling story.”
Fred Kirschenmann, Ph.D., Director of the Leopold Center for Sustainable Agriculture

“What works in this film is its intellectual honesty and the sense of hope that is its underlying message.”
Rufus Woods, editor and publisher, The Wenatchee World

“We need more Jamie Howells and Guy Evanses in our communities who have real convictions and are willing to give of themselves as servants to the future of a civil society. Thanks to Guy and Jamie for your gift to our future.”
