Event: A Great Documentary Featuring the Farmer Behind One of the Largest CSAs in the US

“My family has been plowing and planting every Spring for generations.
I inherited this history and I just about ended the whole thing . . .”
-- Farmer John

"Meet Farmer John, a man who will turn every idea you ever had about what it means to be an American farmer, or an American dreamer, on its head. Farmer John might sit on a tractor but he’s also an outrageous artist, a maverick environmentalist, a homespun rebel, a pink-boa-wearing eccentric, a playful provocateur – and the incredible human being whose inspirational story of revolutionizing his family farm and redeeming his own life has won accolades and awards at film festivals around the world in THE REAL DIRT ON FARMER JOHN."
