Video Length: 5:11
Produced by: Robert McFalls

I had to share this video with my gardening buddies...You probably already know of the Dervaes family, who has converted their 1/10th acre yard into a real family farm. They grow 6000 lbs of produce in this space every year!  What they don't eat...they sell to local restaurants. The family members don't have jobs outside the farm.  I am amazed at what they are able to produce in such a small space...it really made me rethink what's possible in my own backyard!

Recently a documentary about this amazing family was produced, and will be made available on DVD soon.  This is the trailer for the documentary. I can't wait to get hold of the DVD and get inspired to farm my own 1/10th acre! :)
