Director Andrew Szava-Kovats presents a portrait of Rollie's Farm in Lowell, Massachusetts, where the Parron family has been growing fresh produce and more for over 50 years. Family owned since 1953, Rollie's Farm has eschewed the corporate trend, and thanks to the supportive locals they've always managed to stay in business. But that's not to say that it's been all smooth sailing for the Parron's; a conversation with Rollie and his elderly parents reveal just how close they came to losing the farm due to taxation issues in the mid-1970s. As always, however, they managed to bounce back, and today their far is the pride of the entire community.
