THE BIGGEST LITTLE FARM is a film that takes us through a wild ride of emotions with the team who have made Apricot Lane Farms a success under the guidance of Molly and John Chester. One of the most important end products is food and they have created many wonderful recipes. EatDrinkFilms is thrilled to have been given permission to offer some of them to you.
