Anyone who watched and now wants to visit The Farm should PLEASE donate to our ecohostel expansion Indiegogo Campaign -- just 16 days to go!

      Congrats. I can't wait to see it. When I saw that at least one of you were alumni of MTV like yours truly I had to have a closer look at the project. Glad I did.

      I'm looking forward to seeing the movie. Spent several days on the Farm around 1976 and it was an interesting experience.

      Great project! I live close to The Farm and I'm so happy someone is finally telling its story. It's a very interesting piece of American history that needs to be shared.
