This Week on Beyond Organic - Farmer John Goes Hollywood

Midwestern farmer John Peterson has been called a maverick, a philosopher and a devil worshipper for his approach to life, art and organic vegetable growing. Now, his story is hitting the big screen as a documentary film.

"The Real Dirt on Farmer John," follows Peterson's transformation from a straight laced farm boy to the eccentric owner of one of the largest Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) operations in the country.

The movie has won kudos from Al Gore and Roger Ebert while racking up film festival awards.

Join host Jerry Kay, as we learn all about the new film and hear Farmer John's opinions on some of Beyond Organicís favorite topics including: the cost of organics, biodynamic farming and GMO's.
