I cried a lot during this, multiple times, it's an engaging ride.

Highly entertaining.

Then to realize that they also told their story in such a real, creative and compelling way makes it all the more awe inspiring.

Typically audiences find documentaries to be boring and sometimes slow.

Overall, it's an enjoyable film that will hold your attention.

While on the surface this story sounds VERY dull, it's amazing that it isn't.

Overall, "The Biggest Little Farm" is entertaining, enlightening, and ultimately encouraging.

and hence chances are that we are seeing only the very best (and worst) moments, but that in reality there was a lot of hard and mundane farming work being done to transform the previous (dead) farm into the oasis that it it eventually would become again.

Everyone seemed to have an enjoyable time.

The story of how two people just decide to try traditional farming during the drought in California is entertaining.

High value engaging emotional ride .

I highly recommend it; actually I think it's a movie everyone should see to gain respect for Farmers, animals, & nature!!

Even if I'm not a back to the land type, the film itself is engaging, the people in it are compelling, and what those people get up to in it should hold your attention.

Entertaining, Enlightening, and Encouraging .

Lovely and visually stunning .

also funny and exciting!

The story is very compelling, especially for people who are already into connecting with nature and for sustainability.

The film, with stunning cinematography of nature as a feast for the eyes, takes the viewer on a rollercoaster ride with the tickles in one's stomach at the sight of newly formed buds opening or piglets being born and then plunges into the tragedy of loss inherent in the cycle of life.

Great story, well constructed narrative and stunning cinematography.

I do think the problems were important but it got a little repetitive.

Apricot Lane Farms proves itself to be a fascinating ecosystem.
