The award winning documentary The Biggest Little Farm is the focus of Dave's conversation with filmmaker turned farmer John Chester. He along with his wife Molly and their rescue dog Todd moved from a Los Angeles apartment onto a rundown 200 acre piece of property in Moorpark, Calif.

With the help of their mentor Alan York, they set out to rehabilitate the land into a biodynamic farm that had livestock, fruit trees and crops that grow and flourish in harmony with the surrounding native plant community ecosystem.
