With world hunger and climate change, farming practices as we know may not be the way of the future.
An agricultural trend of sustainable farming will revolutionize farming practices by combining nature with agriculture to create a harmonious ecosystem.
In The Biggest Little Farm, two Los Angeles seek to restart their city lives towards a new life in agriculture. In the span of several years, the documentary looks into their lives with the beloved animals for the success and challenges of the practice.
Here’s the full synopsis:
A testament to the immense complexity of nature, The Biggest Little Farm follows two dreamers and a dog on an odyssey to bring harmony to both their lives and the land. When the barking of their beloved dog Todd leads to an eviction notice from their tiny LA apartment, John and Molly Chester make a choice that takes them out of the city and onto 200 acres in the foothills of Ventura County, naively endeavoring to build one of the most diverse farms its kind in complete coexistence with nature. The land they’ve chosen, however, is utterly depleted of nutrients and suffering from a brutal drought. The film chronicles eight years of daunting work and outsize idealism as they attempt to create the utopia they seek, planting 10,000 orchard trees and over 200 different crops, and bringing in animals of very kind, including an unforgettable pig named Emma and her best friend, Greasy the Rooster. When the farm’s ecosystem final begins to reawaken, so does the Chester’s hope.
