The Biggest Little Farm

Festival circuit hit documentary that follows filmmaker John Chester, his wife and their dog and they chase their dream to set up a sustainable farm - with zero experience.

"It all started with rescue dog, Todd. He just didn’t like living downtown, so cameraman John and caterer Molly decided to up sticks and move to a rundown homestead an hour outside the city. Their aim was to farm in harmony with nature – but the snails, coyotes and bugs etc., had other ideas. Restoring the soil, fighting off infestations, nursing pregnant pigs, coping with fire and drought – it’s all in a day’s work for the determined couple. By year eight, the natural world is rebounding – barn owls, bobcats, gopher snakes and more – and Apricot Lane Farm is alive with infinite possibilities." (Sydney Film Festival)

Audiences are invited to connect with the material as they might a good James Herriot story, forging a kind of familiarity that includes them in problem-solving each challenge, with the result that viewers share in the triumph of each tiny success.

Once the film drops its initial idealisation of back-to-the-land fantasies in favour of a more realistic assessment of the challenges involved, it becomes genuinely involving and heartening.
