The Biggest Little Farm

dir. John Chester

Documentary // 2019 // 91 min. // Rated PG for mild thematic elements

SYNOPSIS: The Biggest Little Farm follows two dreamers and their beloved dog when they make a choice that takes them out of their tiny L.A. apartment and into the countryside to build one of the most diverse farms of its kind in complete coexistence with nature.

The film chronicles their near decade-long attempt to create the utopia they seek, planting 10,000 orchard trees, hundreds of crops, and bringing in animals of every kind– including an unforgettable pig named Emma and her best friend, Greasy the rooster. When the farm’s ecosystem finally begins to reawaken, their plan to create perfect harmony takes a series of wild turns, and to survive they realize they'll have to reach a far greater understanding of the intricacies and wisdom of nature, and of life itself.

Stay afterward to hear from local farmers Eric and Wendy Manner of Pucker Up Berry Farm, as they discuss some agricultural issues more crucial to our own region and how they're utilizing some alternative farming practices in their own operation.
