A testament to the immense complexity of nature, “The Biggest Little Farm” is the inspirational story of two dreamers, John and Molly Chester, who move from the city out to the country to build one of the most diverse and sustainable farms of its kind in complete coexistence with the elements. Chronicling nearly eight years of epic ups and downs and startling trials and errors, the film is a “gorgeous and often devastating look at good intentions slamming into harsh practical challenges” (Indiewire) as the Chesters persevere through coyote attacks, insect infestations, floods, fires, and much more to build their utopia. Winner of multiple film festival Audience Awards, The Biggest Little Farm is “stunning” (Variety), and “genuinely involving and heartening” (The Hollywood Reporter).
