The Biggest Little Farm PG

View Trailer

The Biggest Little Farm feels like fresh air for the soul … an inspirational story of one couple who made an impact by entirely rethinking their ecological footprint.” – Variety

Thirty-something married couple John and Molly Chester – he a cinematographer; she a pastry chef and food blogger – knew nothing about agriculture when they ambitiously decided to start a biodiverse farm on depleted land an hour’s drive from Los Angeles. But in directing this joyful documentary, John Chester turns his and Molly’s tree change into something both enchanting and morally challenging.

Thanks to John’s background shooting nature documentaries, the film is packed with stunning imagery that leaps off the big screen, immersing human concerns in a complete ecosystem. As well as learning farming by trial and error, John and Molly must roll with a world where coyotes steal their chickens, and gophers and snails gnaw on their fruit trees. Over eight years, their ideas about their place in the world undergo quiet, radical change. And you’ll leave the cinema feeling hopeful.

“A captivating personal journey with a concern for harmony and a gentle sense of humor.” – The Film Stage
