The Biggest Little Farm

Directed by: John Chester

USA, 2018, 91m

A testament to the immense complexity of nature, The Biggest Little Farm renders a heartfelt portrait of a Los Angeles couple (and their beloved dog) who flee the stress of LA for a new life managing a farm just north of the city limits in the foothills of Ventura County. Director/cinematographer John Chester and his food blogger wife Molly created Apricot Lane Farms to reconnect with nature and live an eco-friendly, sustainable lifestyle. Chronicling eight years of daunting work and outsize idealism—including planting 10,000 orchard trees and over 200 crops and bringing in animals of every kind—this unforgettable film joyously recounts the struggles, successes, and wild twists and turns of their inspirational endeavor. Putting his camera skills to good use in the service of rural California’s breathtaking natural splendor, Chester creates an autobiographical scrapbook like no other. What emerges is a life-affirming tale of one family who followed their hearts and turned their dreams of harmony into a flourishing, sustainable reality.
