“I really appreciated your openness and honesty to tell the truth about your experience. You have a really beautiful way of articulating your experience in the moment… What I loved about the film is Roger was really good about being honest and taking a critical look at being a small scale farmer. And he didn’t romanticize it.”

We loved the unique view of a chef-turned-farmer and the things Patty did to stay in business as the economy shifted.  Ag & Art Film Festival

Excellent!  Delightful, a real masterpiece. So enlightening.  It should be required watching in schools everywhere. Patty is a jewel, in Japan she’d be a National Treasure.

Your film captured Patti’s spirit, generosity and knowledge.  I learned from her and from you.  It made me want to go out and plant right now (Christmas Day!)
