A portrait of six headstrong farmers
The film is a portrait of six farmers and their CSA farm: a story about their ideals and passion, the relationship with their members, the struggle for land, the doubts and the setbacks, and their dream for the future.

Most of all, this film shows the beauty of community supported agriculture. Director: Jildou Friso – Year: 2017 – Country: Netherlands – Language: Dutch – Subtitles: English – Length: 35 minutes
