What do you do when your barking dog gets you evicted from your apartment? Molly and John Chester decide to create a farm on 200 acres of nutrient-depleted land suffering from drought. Then there’s the wildfires, and plot twists that prove true life is stranger than fiction. This is the inspiring tale of incredibly resilient farmers striving to understand the intricacies and wisdom of nature, and of life itself.
“Fresh air for the soul…[the] inspirational story of one couple who made an
