An Acquired Taste
The Award-Winning Documentary, An Acquired Taste Follows Our Education Director, Brian King and 2 of His Students
An Acquired Taste by French documentary producer/director Vanessa Lemaire following three urban teens from non-hunting non-gun owning families, who unplug, develop the skills to be hunters, and show their parents what it means to responsibly put food on the table. Vanessa followed two of the students in our mentoring program Nick, 11 and Alex, 12. Both boys believing that wild local game is the ultimate in free-range, GMO-free, and organically grown meat. You will follow these teens on their 2-year journey in just one of our mentored programs following our director’s footsteps for locavore protein harvested in an ethical and humane manner.
Since the filming of this documentary the boys are now in college, our location has changed to better serve our participants, we have many more programs to serve not only youth, but adults, veterans, and seniors. Our name has changed to better reflect the depth and breadth of what we do; what has not changed is our individualized approach to education, using the student’s passion as the vehicle for learning academics and critical thinking, and the value we see in both having most instruction outside and doing what is real.
