This locally-produced documentary examines Community-Supported Agriculture (CSA), in which consumers buy shares of a local farm harvest, receiving a weekly supply of fresh food throughout the season. It is also a critique of the Organic-Industrial complex and the modern corporate-controlled globalized food system. Small-scale organic farmers in the South Puget Sound region share their views on the present reality of small-scale CSA farming and its impact on farmers, consumers, and the local community as a whole.

Director Ajani grew up on such a farm in the Independence Valley south of Olympia, and his passion for the subject is evident in the beautiful selection of imagery and music that accompanies the observations and insights shared in the film.
