The true story of John Peterson, third generation Northern Illinois farmer. Using 50 years of richly textured footage, filmmaker Taggart Siegel weaves together Farmer John’s haunting and humorous hero’s journey of struggle, hippie days, vicious rumors and violence, the farming crisis of the 80s, death and resurrection. Through melding farming with free expression, Farmer John’s powerful story of transformation heralds a renewal of local agriculture in America.
“Unbelievably special … a real and gripping story with insight and humor.”
"A most compelling character ... Suffused with a soulful optimism as vast as the fruited plains."
