HOW WE GROW is the documentary film collaboration between Haley Thompson and Tomas Zuccareno. Both were equally moved by the passionate community of local farmers and ranchers in the Roaring Fork Valley and want to share their story in hopes of empowering future generations to join the movement.


Haley Thompson

Haley was born and raised in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. With a BFA in Film and Writing from Emerson College, she has built a career around her love of storytelling through film. From documentaries and independent/foreign films to comedies of all genres, Haley has 12 years experience as a trailer editor and producer in film advertising, having worked for some of the top agencies in LA and NYC. The energy around the local food movement of the Roaring Fork Valley inspired her to move back home and make HOW WE GROW.

Tomas Zuccareno

Tomas was raised on a small family farm in New Hampshire and grew up with a deep respect for the land.  He has a B.A. in Photojournalism from Prescott College where he was awarded for his powerful story telling style. He has travelled the world working for organizations like The National Geographic Society, Conde Naste and Forbes.  He has been a part of the Marketing team at Aspen Snowmass for 23 years and a Staff Photographer for ESPN Images for 17.   A desire to tell the story of the community that has been his family for more than two decades inspired him to make HOW WE GROW.
