The Seed

Spencer Films

Everything old is new again!  Spencer Films and the Staley Museum explore the history of A. E. Staley and the A. E. Staley Manufacturing Company in Decatur, IL through our podcast "The Seed".  We provide background and insight to the documentary "Fields of Gold", produced in partnership with the Decatur Herald & Review.  The film, with Emmy Award-winning narrator Peter Coyote, looks at the life of A. E. Staley as he traveled the country to build his agribusiness empire, and how one seed he planted as a young boy in North Carolina grew into the legacy that remains today.  Find out more about the documentary, the Staley Museum, the Decatur Staleys football team (which became the Chicago Bears), and the history that surrounds it all through this look back in time.
