Festival circuit hit documentary BIGGEST LITTLE FARM 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)
