The Soul of A Farmer

Coming Soon

The Soul of A Farmer follows Patty Gentry as she struggles to earn a living on her three acre Early Girl Farm on Long Island. Isabella Rossellini, from whom Patty rents her land tells us, “Patty reminds me of my mother, the famous actress Ingrid Bergman. They’re both so passionate.”

The Soul of A Farmer explodes the romance of Farm-To-Table. We watch Patty work her butt off with her mostly female team seven days a week, trying to figure out ways to improve her yield, make the soil healthy, and stay afloat.  

Formerly a chef, Patty worked the line at Anne Rosenzweig’s Arcadia next to Missy Robbins. She sells her “exquisite” produce to fine dining restaurants in Brooklyn and Long Island. Also appearing: chef/restaurateurs Anita Lo, Sohui Kim, Mary Attea, and Andrew Tarlow.
