"Two PhD soil scientists trade the security of academic tenure at a world-renowned research institution for the relentless challenges and economic uncertainty of operating a Grade A goat dairy and farmstead creamery in central Illinois. Using milk from their herd of Nubian and LaMancha goats, Leslie Cooperband and Wes Jarrell, proprietors of Prairie Fruits Farm & Creamery, produce artisan goat milk cheese, gelato, and cajeta, which are showcased during bi-weekly slow food dinners on the farm. The film follows them over a four-year period capturing the transformation of a previously cash grain landscape into diversified perennial crops and livestock while they strive to embody the core principles of sustainability -- environmental stewardship, economic viability, and social responsibility. As they engage with the community at farmer's markets, on-site dinners and breakfasts, and agricultural assemblies, their mission to educate the public about the benefits of locally-sourced small-farm products is literally changing the American food system one meal at a time" -- Container.
