The Biggest Little Farm
Director: John Chester
Best Documentary Feature & Grand Prize at 2019 Boulder International Film Festival
The Biggest Little Farm chronicles the eight-year quest of John and Molly Chester as they trade city living for 200 acres of barren farmland and a dream to harvest in harmony with nature.
Through dogged perseverance, embracing the opportunity provided by nature’s conflicts, they discover a biodiverse design for living that exists far beyond their farm, its seasons, and our wildest imagination. Featuring breathtaking cinematography, captivating animals, and an urgent message to heed Mother Nature’s call, the film provides us all a vital blueprint for better living and a healthier planet. Farmer/Director Chester states, “One of the really inspiring things about farming in this way, where we prioritize the cultivation of beauty, is the amount of inspiration and energy we get even in the throes of some of the most difficult challenges and struggles.”
He hopes that the film encourages viewers to trust that nature has answers to the challenges of climate change.
