After promising their new rescue dog Todd with a happy life, Los Angeles couple John & Molly Chester realise their tiny apartment isn't cutting it. Following their long-held dream to harvest in harmony with nature, they trade in their city life for a 200-acre farm. But soon they find that the farming life isn't easy, as they face a seemingly endless cascade of challenges from weather, predators, infestations, and disease. With a background in cinematography, John documents their setbacks—and progress—over eight years. The Biggest Little Farm is enlightening and entertaining, effectively balancing one family’s personal story with the practical ups and downs of starting a sustainable, biodiverse farm.
