Harvesting Happiness is a documentary about Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) in the Netherlands. CSA is a form of community agriculture in which both consumers and farmers are responsible for cultivating food crops: this means sharing the risks as well as the benefits.
The film portrays six farmers and their CSA enterprise: their passion and ideals, their bond with their members, their battle for land, their doubts and the setbacks, and their dreams for the future. It offers a glimpse of the position these farmers are in, and of an aspect of our food that is invisible to many of us. What do they think of our current food system? Why have they chosen to take a different approach from conventional farming? And, above all, the film shows the beauty of CSA.
Harvesting Happiness is working towards more sustainable and socially involved agriculture.
