Farmer John & his cabbageI recently screened the film, The Real Dirt on Farmer John, an interesting tale of a farm over a period of several decades, and in fact, generations. But in particular, it was about Farmer John, a man that will surprise you and inspire you along the way.

It’s also a story of how one conventional farm tripped and turned until it found its way to organics…and eventually to becoming a CSA (community supported agriculture) called Angelic Organics, serving over 1300 families in the the Chicago area. What’s incredible about the film is that so rarely in a documentary do you have so many years of film to tell your story.

John will talk about his childhood, and you can see it, feel it, because the family had always video taped their life on the farm. Farmer John & Leslie Littlefield in “The Bug Song”And in addition to that, director Taggart Siegel had known and documented John & his family for over 25 years.

I think it’s important that we know where our food comes from, as well as what farmers today (and throughout history) are having to deal with. Seeing a farmer drive a tractor wearing a boa or dressed as a bumble bee isn’t bad, either.

The Real Dirt on Farmer John is currently screening across the country. Check the theater dates and cities. You don’t have to live in the biggest of cities to see this one.
