The epic tale of a maverick Midwestern farmer, The Real Dirt on Farmer John documents the dramatic failure of Farmer John's conventional farming operation and its resurrection into a thriving, organic Community Supported Agriculture farm.

By melding the traditions of family farming with the power of art and free expression, this quintessentially American story heralds a resurrection of farming in America.



Through highly personal interviews and 50 years of beautifully textured footage, filmmaker Taggart Siegel shares Farmer John's haunting and humorous odyssey, and thru Farmer John's connection to the earth, audiences will discover an appreciation for where our food comes from and the vital link to the community.
