Biggest Little Farm (91 mins)

DIRECTOR: John Chester

Q&A with Scott Chaskey, Amagansett’s longtime Quail Hill Farm director, poet and author, and Layton Guenther, its farm manager, speaking about their experiences heading Quail Hill, one of the original Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) farms in the United States.

Biggest Little Farm chronicles the personal journey of two big-city foodies—John Chester and his wife Molly, a culinary writer—as they trade city life to acquire and establish their own farm, Apricot Lane Farms, on 200 acres of depleted and dry soil in Moorpark, California, outside of Los Angeles. Over an eight-year stretch, they work doggedly to live in harmony with nature, planting 10,000 orchard trees and over 200 crops, raising animals of every kind, including a pig named Emma and a rooster named Greasy, all the while combating obstacles that include coyotes, insects, drought and disease.
