Info

A Documentary Night screening of The Biggest Little Farm. The successes and failures of a couple determined to live in harmony with nature on a farm outside of Los Angeles are lovingly chronicled by filmmaking farmer John Chester in this inspiring documentary. John and his wife Molly, a culinary writer, trade city life to start their own farm on a stretch of depleted soil outside Los Angeles. John chronicles their efforts for more than eight years in this
sweeping epic of twists and turns related to the creation of Apricot Lane Farms. As neophytes, John and Molly enlist a consultant, Alan York, whose vision is to raise an array of crops and livestock. Alan cautions that it will take seven years before they fully realize their potential. During that wait, they face mounting obstacles: coyotes, insects, bad weather, and disease. Most farmers would respond with pesticides, extermination, and concentration on a single crop. But following their guru, John and Molly remain steadfast in their commitment to working with nature, not against it. Teeming with stunningly beautiful images of flora and fauna -- and a pregnant hog that will melt your heart -- The Biggest Little Farm is a testament to idealiSM.
