John and Molly look in to their rescue dogs eyes and realise they need to buy a farm.
That is the romanticised version. In reality Molly is an established chef and has dreamt of creating a sustainable farm with amazing produce. John is a documentary maker and decides to track the process.
Firstly, I cried. Second, it was inspiring.
What they embarked on is far from my personal experience but the premise engaged me entirely. They have taken on a project (200 acres) in dessert like Californian conditions. The soil was clay and it looked impossible.
There is high drama, fire, death (animal and human), new life and never ending failure.
I really wanted to do other things last night before bed but I couldn’t turn it off. I was incredibly suspicious of the investors and mentor they had. I won’t tell you any more. You should watch it if you have a project you have been putting off. If you think it’s too hard, this documentary will show you hard.
Now I’m inspired I need to get moving on my next big project. Landscaping our front garden.
