SYNOPSIS

This delightful and stunningly shot documentary follows John and Molly Chester on their eight-year journey to turn 200 acres of neglected land into a thriving eco-farm.

Aspiring farmers John and Molly abandon their unsatisfying urban existence to risk it all on an unorthodox approach to agriculture in rural California. Their embryonic Apricot Lane Farm is immediately beset by challenges — from pests and wildfires to California’s longest drought in a millennium — that require a deep well of resilience and innovation to overcome. Endearing and thought-provoking in equal measure, The Biggest Little Farm raises pertinent questions about ecosystems and what it means to live in harmony with nature.
