The inspiring story of British farmers standing up against the industrial food system and transforming the way they produce food – to heal the soil, benefit our health and provide for local communities

The summary of soil and agriculture was incredible and to see these farmers doing what they’re doing is so inspiring, it’s made me optimistic,” Rachel Joseph, ORFC audience member. “An excellent film really put well together, told the journey, told the story.
