I thoroughly enjoyed this movie. It is well presented. Anyone that is contemplating moving from the city and starting a small scale farm operation using permaculture, sustainable and biodiversity concepts should watch this film. As in any farm operation, big or small, there are many hardships, roadblocks, and heart aches. There is also a lot of joy and gratification. Watch for yourself.
The Biggest Little Farm follows two dreamers and their beloved dog when they make a choice that takes them out of their tiny L.A. apartment and into the countryside to build one of the most diverse farms of its kind in complete coexistence with nature. The film chronicles their near decade-long attempt to create the utopia they seek, planting 10,000 orchard trees, hundreds of crops, and bringing in animals of every kind– including an unforgettable pig named Emma and her best friend, Greasy the rooster. When the farm’s ecosystem finally begins to reawaken, their plan to create perfect harmony takes a series of wild turns, and to survive they realize they'll have to reach a far greater understanding of the intricacies and wisdom of nature, and of life itself.
