Special Guests: Matthew Dix, Island Grown Initiative/North Tabor Farm, and with several other island farmers.

THE BIGGEST LITTLE FARM chronicles the eight-year quest of John and Molly Chester as they trade city living for 200 acres of barren farmland and a dream to harvest in harmony with nature. Through dogged perseverance and embracing the opportunity provided by nature’s conflicts, the Chester’s unlock and uncover a biodiverse design for living that exists far beyond their farm, its seasons, and our wildest imagination.

Featuring breathtaking cinematography, captivating animals, and an urgent message to heed Mother Nature’s call, THE BIGGEST LITTLE FARM provides us all a vital blueprint for better living and a healthier planet.

 

Matthew has a passion for intensive small scale agriculture and has been growing and processing chickens using the mobile unit since its early days in 2007. Matthew and his wife Rebecca live in Chilmark with their three children where they have owned and operated North Tabor Farm since 1994.

"Dramatically compelling and transcendentally beautiful tale of the struggle to reconcile humanity and nature." - Counterpunch.org

"Once the film drops its initial idealization of back-to-the-land fantasies in favor of a more realistic assessment of the challenges involved, it becomes genuinely involving and heartening." - Hollywood Reporter
