When faced with an eviction notice from their tiny LA apartment, John and Molly Chester make a choice that takes them out of the city and onto 200 acres in the foothills of Ventura County, CA. Part of their inspiration is to offer a more outdoorsy life for their rescue dog, Todd. Moreover, they want to live in better harmony with nature. Many of us hold similar dreams, but John and Molly put them into action.

The barren land they've chosen, however, requires years of daunting work and an unforeseen test of their ideals. Through tenacious perseverance and by embracing the opportunities provided by nature's conflicts, the Chesters unlock a biodiverse design for living that exists far beyond their farm, its seasons and our wildest imagination. Featuring breathtaking cinematography, captivating animals and an urgent message to heed Mother Nature's call, The Biggest Little Farm provides us all a vital blueprint for better living and a healthier planet.
