Distraught over the loss of his best friend in the 9/11 attacks on the World Trade Center, John Ubaldo decided to trade in his high finance Wall Street career for 185 acres of land on the Battenkill River in upstate NY. His goal was to raise delicious and nutritious food and return to healthier farming methods that were used 100 years ago. It is not long before John’s dream of living a simple, traditional agricultural life gets complicated as he comes up against Big Agriculture. True to his beliefs, he becomes a passionate and outspoken activist for the disappearing life of the small town farmer.
