THE BIGGEST LITTLE FARM documents the quest to bring a piece of land back to life by creating a flourishing and diverse ecosystem that supports food production. Featuring breathtaking cinematography, captivating animals, and an urgent message to heed Mother Nature’s call, the film provides a vital blueprint for better living and a healthier planet.
For parents: The film is rated PG for mild thematic elements, including pictures of dead chickens and ducks, killed by coyotes. Here is a review by Parent Previews which gave the film an A+ rating but concluded that it “really isn’t a movie for little kids, although older elementary school age children will probably enjoy it, especially if they love animals.”

The event is hosted by Green Needham and the First Parish in Needham Green Congregation Committee.
