Editorial Reviews

An important addition to the "Local-Food Movement," this fascinating documentary has unique perspective on the issue of small farms. It looks at the last working family farm in Lowell, Massachusetts: "Rollie's Farm".
This is an intimate personal portrait of the farm and the family that's run it for more than half a century!

Interesting...but for the continual background 'noise'. I was really glued to what Rollie and the rest of the gang were saying...but the continual obtrusive 'noise' in the background ruined this sketch of farm life for me because it often made it difficult to differentiate between what Rollie and the others were saying. If this were a discussion on 'Jazz' instead of farming, then it might have worked.

I am also a grower and have been one for as long as Rollie, and so I was looking forward to hearing what he had to say. Many of the things he talked about I have discovered for myself. I would have liked to hear him talk with only silence in the backgound as is done in documentaries though.

...please...Rollie... RE-EDIT this video and get rid of the distractive noise that detracted from imparting your very valuable insights.

The Last Farm in Lowell: A Drummer, a Farmer, a Father and his Family of Friends on the Farm ...

The filmmaker, Andrew Szava-Kovata, is both an artist and a musician. Being trained in both the visual and sonic arts gives him the unique perspective of being able to simultaneously focus on both the cinematographic as well as the sound recording functions of filmmaking. This is a rare and valuable quality. His talents at documentary filmmaking are in full force here in this latest film about the last farm in Lowell, Massachusetts.

People usually do not think of Lowell, Massachusetts as a rural area with country qualities and woodsy landscapes. But at one time, before Lowell was carved out of Chelmsford, Dracut, and Tewksbury - straddling both sides of both the Concord and the Merrimack Rivers - it was a beautiful and bucolic place to live. The Pawtucket, Penacook, Massachusetts, and Wamesit Indians of this area who had lived on this land for thousands of years were well aware of its intrinsic natural beauty with its two rivers, rolling hills, mini mountains, and many fields and streams that ran along old Indian trails through the woods all over the landscape. It is still a breathtakingly beautiful place, especially looking down from hilly Belvidere in the northeast (once a village hamlet of North Tewksbury and a Wamesit Indian Podunk village before that) out and onto the Merrimack River in the north, bordering Dracut on its west banks, as it rolls its way northeast toward the Atlantic Ocean at Newburyport, Massachusetts. One can imagine how much joy it brought its First Nation indigenous inhabitants to look out onto that river as it winded its way toward the sea.
