Hey guys, why don't you see the movie before commenting...
The story of Farmer John is a success story for Community Supported
Agriculture and organics. The family farm went bust due to a lot of factors
and he leant from it, started again and turned things around on a smaller
parcel growing organic veg. He's a lovable eccentric. I met him here in
Australia a couple of years ago at a screening of the movie and was on a CSA
discussion panel following the film.
Inspiring and entertaining.
