The Bullish Farmer

A documentary on sustainable agriculture which journeys into the life of a Wall Street investment banker turned farmer as he struggles to build and run a farm that is feeding his family and the community he has lived in his whole life.

A very positive film with a sympathetic and inspiring main character. We recommend the film to all viewers who want to learn about sustainable and healthy food production and be entertained by John's humorous nature.
