What parents need to know

Parents need to know that The Biggest Little Farm is a documentary that follows a couple as they attempt to turn a dry patch of land into a huge, sustainable farm. After the barking of their dog, Todd, gets John and Molly Chester evicted from their L.A. apartment, they decide to follow their longtime dream of living a rural life. They move to a 200-acre plot of land in Southern California and, over the course of eight years, attempt to turn it into a diverse, sustainable farm full of trees, crops, and livestock. Expect some strong language and vivid depictions of farm life, including the birth and death of animals. But this will likely be a family-friendly look at the joys and struggles that come with working in nature.
