The Biggest Little Farm - film poster

Not far from Los Angeles, director John Chester and his wife Molly are trying to turn arid, worn-out land into a unique farm with a thriving, self-regulating ecosystem; a challenge that presents a lot of obstacles. 'The Biggest Little Farm' shows us a frank, beautifully photographed, and exceptionally touching portrait of this long but fascinating process to live in harmony with nature, addressing not only the successes but also the hardships to cross. The Biggest Little Farm is an inspiring story for the whole family on achieving dreams and living sustainably, in harmony with nature, while highlighting important issues as soil degradation, water use and the importance of achieving the Sustainable Development Goals for the benefit of all.

The film will be followed by a panel discussion with UN and EU experts, together with producer John Chester.

FAO has a long history of fostering sustainable agricultural development and the sustainable use of biodiversity for food and agriculture to pursue its goal of ending poverty and hunger. The air we breathe, the water we drink and the food we eat all rely on biodiversity. It is fundamental we produce food in a way that preserves the environment. Closely interlinked, biodiversity and ecosystem services support agriculture in multiple ways, benefitting farmers’ livelihoods and well-being.
