An upcoming documentary on the Discovery channel will explore a new grassroots conservation movement in America—a movement based on stewardship of the land, and centered on those who live and work on the land.

Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman tells the story of four stewards of the land in the U.S., including a Kansas farmer, a Montana rancher, and a fisherman in the Gulf of Mexico. The film is narrated by Tom Brokaw and based on a book of the same name.

The documentary will be of interest to High Plains residents who are looking for ways to keep their businesses, alive while staying true to the land they love, whether through ranching or farming.

Rancher, Farmer, Fisherman premieres August 31 on Discovery.
