The Real Dirt on Farmer John

The epic tale of a maverick Midwestern farmer, THE REAL DIRT ON FARMER JOHN documents the dramatic failure of Farmer John's conventional farming operation and its resurrection into a thriving, organic Community Supported Agriculture farm. By Melding the traditions of family farming with the power of art and free expression, the quintessentially American story heralds a resurrection of farming in America.
This film would win in many categories--quirky documentary, personal memoir, organic farming, overcoming adversity...I'm sure I'll see it again.
