The Biggest Little Farm
After their adorable rescue dog Todd causes them to be evacuated from their urban home for incessant barking, John and Molly Chester decide to follow their dream of creating a sustainable farm together. They move to a rural area outside of Los Angeles and have 200 acres of land to mold into their own vision, aided by their mentor and friend, Alan. Shot over eight years, this enlightening documentary highlights their various struggles, challenges and triumphs along the way, as they aim to create a biodiverse haven for all creatures, great and small. ‘The Biggest Little Farm’ educates young audiences about the food chain, farming practices, nature, and issues around life and death in an accessible way.
