A testament to the immense complexity of nature, The Biggest Little Farm follows two dreamers and a dog on an odyssey to bring harmony to both their lives and the land. When the barking of their beloved dog Todd leads to an eviction notice from their tiny LA apartment, John and Molly Chester make a choice that takes them out of the city and onto 200 acres in the foothills of Ventura County, naively endeavoring to build one of the most diverse farms of its kind in complete coexistence with nature. The land they've chosen, however, is utterly depleted of nutrients and suffering from a brutal drought. The film chronicles eight years of daunting work and outsize idealism as they attempt to create the utopia they seek, planting 10,000 orchard trees and over 200 different 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, so does the Chesters' hope - but as their plan to create perfect harmony takes a series of wild turns, they realize that to survive they will have to reach a far greater understanding of the intricacies and wisdom of nature, and of life itself.

I like how it just keeps going on and on, and then back to the beginning again. It really does get depressing. I feel like I should make a thread about it, but I don't know where to start. It's kind of a way of life for these people, and they make me feel like I'm one of them. I feel so bad for them. I feel bad for the people who aren't as lucky. I feel bad for people who are dealing with something so bad they don't know what to do with it. I feel bad for those who don't know how to deal with it, or those who are just numb to it. It's sad, but there are good things in this movie too. I think this movie would be awesome for people who are depressed. If you can relate to the situation you're in, this movie is for you. I hope you find something out about it too, because it's really sad.

I think this movie is a must see for anyone who has an interest in farming, since you get to see the lives of many farmers all over the country. I think the filmmakers did a great job at creating the feel of the era and making it feel authentic. I also think that the fact that it is centered around the lives of farmers from the 50's and 60's helps with the realism. I would recommend this to anyone who has a farm or is interested in farming.

Every year this documentary film comes out about the Indiana farm where I live. It's about the positive ways people of the community of Lohio have helped to promote a farm for the community. The farm is a happy place and the people that work there are always happy to talk to the community about their life. I highly recommend this film and the film is available for free in my local library.

When I saw the preview for this documentary, I wasn't too sure what to expect. It seemed like a boring and overly-long documentary about a farmer in California. I was wrong! It was about a farmer in California. I have never met or heard of such a farmer in my life. I was pleasantly surprised to find out that a lot of people have seen it and they have enjoyed it. In fact, a lot of people have viewed it several times, and I'm not one of those people. This film is beautifully shot and is worth watching multiple times. The cinematography is great and the characters are well-rounded and relatable. I loved this documentary, and will definitely watch it again. This is an amazing and unexpected documentary. 10/10

The Biggest Little Farm is a documentary about the farm in the US state of New York. The documentary is shot by the farm owners themselves, and they have been very open about their motivation for making this film. The documentary is quite well done, and is well made. The farm itself is quite beautiful, with a beautiful setting and very nice people. The farm itself is also very interesting, and the documentary is well worth watching. The documentary is well worth watching, and it is well worth the time to watch it.

This film was very good, and I found it to be very interesting. One of the things I liked about the film was the different POVs from which the film was shot. I found it very interesting how the film was shot, from the "roadside" to the very end. I thought the whole story of how the farmer saw the cancer, and how the farmer fought to get the treatment he needed, was interesting. Also, the entire family that got cancer were very human and they all gave very human performances. I think the film also did an excellent job of showing how it can be very difficult for some to accept the death of a loved one, but I think that it was a very good job of portraying how the family dealt with the loss. I think the acting was good in this film. The kids did an excellent job of being real kids, and they were very likable and they acted in their own way. I think it was a very good film, and I thought that it was very well done.

I had seen some of the comments on this film, and I thought I'd check it out. I had no idea what to expect, and was pleasantly surprised to find this film. It is a little confusing at times, and sometimes a little slow. I didn't think it was very good, but I did enjoy the research that was done. I think they did a good job of putting the story together, and I thought it was done in a very entertaining way. This is a very touching story, and it really is a must see for those who care about the environment.

I have to say, this was one of the most heartwarming, uplifting documentaries I have ever seen. It gives a lot of information about the importance of the farm, and why it is so important. It also has some wonderful testimonials from people who have worked on the farm, and it also includes some inspiring stories from farmers who have grown up on the farm. The documentary is very moving and it is well made. It is great for anyone who has ever worked in the farm industry, or for anyone who wants to become a farmer. The voice of the farmer is very strong, and the words that the farmer says are inspirational. The documentaries theme is that if you want to succeed in life, you need to work for it. I recommend this documentary to anyone.

This movie had the potential to be so much more than what it turned out to be. I have always been a huge fan of David Bell and his work. This movie was a real breath of fresh air. David is a very talented story teller and he did a really good job of telling the story. I loved the camera work, the fact that the world outside of this movie is the same as the world inside the movie. This movie is a rare treat. I hope everyone will see this movie. If you have not seen it yet I highly recommend it. You won't regret it.

If you want to know about the farming and livestock industry in the United States, this documentary is for you. It is a series of interviews with many of the major players in the industry, including a farmer, a cattle rancher, a hog farmer, and a hog breeder. The interviews are mostly from the perspective of the individual, but they do cover some of the industry's history. The interviews are all interesting, and the way the interviews are edited together, makes the whole thing very interesting. One of the highlights of the documentary is the interview with the former president of the National Pork Producers Council, which has been lobbying for the passage of the Poultry Products Inspection Act (PPIA) since the late 1970s. The PPIA would require that all meat and poultry sold in the United States be inspected by the USDA and the FDA. The PPIA was passed in 1993, but the new president of the National Pork Producers Council, who is the son of the former president, didn't support it. He is the main reason that the documentary is called "The Biggest Little Farm."

This documentary is one of the best I've seen in a while. It's about the struggle of a family of six to survive in the rural South. The father is a farmer, the mother is a homemaker and the son is a truck driver. They're all struggling to make ends meet. The mother is a single mother who's trying to raise her son, who has asthma, and the father is a father who's trying to support his wife and son. They all have to make tough choices. One of the things that I really enjoyed about this documentary was that it was very real. There were no Hollywood stars or celebrities in the film. There were no big-name actors in the film. The focus was very much on the people who were actually struggling to make ends meet. The film is very honest and very inspiring. It's a very good documentary about a very difficult subject.

I've watched this documentary several times and always got something out of it. It's a great look at how family farms were built in the 1930s and 1940s. I particularly enjoyed the interviews with ranchers and farmers. My only real complaint is that it was too short, which would have been fine except for the fact that some of the interviews were really quite interesting. However, it is a very nice documentary that I recommend to anyone interested in family farms and the culture they built. There are a lot of really great things about this documentary and I would recommend it to anyone.

I had no idea what to expect when I first saw this documentary, but I was pleasantly surprised. This is a documentary that should be shown in every high school science class. I found the information to be very interesting and it was a nice change to see the subjects of the documentary in a documentary format. I am not an expert on any of the subjects discussed in this documentary, but I think that it is important to know about these subjects because they can be very difficult to research and understand. I also found that it was interesting to hear the opinions of people who had had experience with GMOs and the other controversial subjects. The only thing I found to be a little bit disappointing was that the subjects of this documentary seemed to be speaking for themselves rather than for the documentary. I would have enjoyed a more balanced approach, but it was still a good documentary and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to learn more about GMOs.

A film about a small farm in the middle of nowhere, the one that is home to the "Biggest Little Farm". The story is about the relationship between the owner of the farm, Jim (Michael Caine) and his son, James (Tom Sizemore). The film follows the relationship between the two men as they grow older and the relationships that develop between them. The film is very interesting because it is told in a way that is very realistic. There are no great twists or surprises in the film, but it does not matter because the audience will be able to relate to the story and will be able to relate to the characters. The film is very well made, the acting is very good and the cinematography is very good. I think that this is one of the best films of the year. It is very well made, well written and well acted. I would recommend this film to anyone.

This documentary is a bit of a disappointment. It is a very good documentary, but it lacks the power of the interviews that are in the movie. The movie is a little slow and there is not enough content. The documentary was filmed in Oregon, but the interviewees are from California. The interviews are mostly from the area where the film was shot. The interviews are good, but the content is lacking. This is a good documentary, but it needs to be better.

I really liked this movie. It's very uplifting, and it's very entertaining. It's about how people can make a difference and how they can work together to make a difference. The film is about the women of the village and how they live their lives. The film is very informative and well-written. It was also very entertaining. I was really surprised at how many people were willing to share their stories. I really recommend this film to anyone who is interested in helping people.

At first, I couldn't tell if the movie was a documentary or a documentary on TV. The trailers showed the production and the only pictures we saw were the production crew and an edited version of the documentary. The movie itself was very interesting and I hope it will be shown on TV soon. This was a great movie for families and those who work in the farm industry, or who have a connection to the industry. I recommend this to everyone who enjoys a documentary. The movie showed the good side of the industry. It showed the bad side and there were no one who was the villain in the movie. I enjoyed the whole thing and I hope that it will be shown on TV soon. I hope the movie won't go under the radar because it's definitely not a normal documentary that you see on TV every day.

It's a great story of how a small town can make a big difference to the world. It's one of the most beautiful documentaries I have ever seen. It's a must see for anyone who is interested in the environment. It's a very uplifting and inspiring story. I really recommend it to anyone who has a passion for the environment.

It's a great documentary that shows a lot of the history of farming and how it's changed over the years. It's a bit slow at times, but it's a great documentary.
