Time Out says

3 out of 5 stars
The burgeoning Community Supported Agriculture movement—advocating a system of farming predicated on closer relationships between farmers and the people who buy their food—turns out to be the ultimate subject of this warmhearted documentary profile of Wisconsin farmer John Peterson. Flamboyant yet laid-back, Farmer John’s singular personality sets the tone of the film, which retraces, through interviews and home movies, his decades-long struggles to keep the family farm in business, culminating in the creation of a rural community dedicated to agriculture and the arts.
