Since its debut at the 2018 Telluride Film Festival, 'The Biggest Little Farm' has charmed audiences and critics alike with its chronicle of one couple's trial-and-error attempts to build a farm in harmony with nature.

It all began with a dog named Todd. Filmmaker John Chester and his wife, Molly, a private chef, promised their rescue dog a happy life, but their Los Angeles apartment just isn’t cutting it. So the couple decides to take a leap of faith and realize a long-held dream. Locating a patch of land outside the city, and a veteran farmer to shepherd them through the process, they set about building Apricot Lane Farms. As the couple faces a seemingly endless cascade of challenges from weather, predators, infestations, and disease, John documents their setbacks and progress over eight years.

"Beautifully filmed to capture the impressive scale of the undertaking and featuring unforgettable characters of both the two and four-legged variety, 'The Biggest Little Farm' is an inspiring ode to uncompromising idealism and a graceful reminder of the magnificence and resilience of the natural world." – Sundance Film Festival 2019
