The film examines the history and challenges the Vetters faced transitioning from conventional farming after WWII to the organic management system they use today. It’s also a story about love, hope, family, and place; an inspiring example of perseverance and doing what you know is right–against all odds.

Featuring Donald Vetter, David Vetter, Rojean Vetter, Allison Vetter, Darci Vetter, Bill and Jan Whitney, Ed Dadey, and others.

“On the Vetter farm, their most important crop is the soil.”
