'Home Grown' is a film about life-style, personal choice and principles. Set in the fields of Brickyard Farm, Ackworth, West Yorkshire, Home Grown tells the story of an organic farmer John Brook who forms an unusual attachment with eco-activists. Home Grown is shot at the third annual Northern Green Gathering and captures the spirit and hope of a growing contemporary culture of grass roots activism.
This is a documentary by members of the 1812 Youth Theatre Group, made with the help of Yorvid Productions as part of the Yorkshire Media Consortium project. It features lots of interviews with farmers and others in the area of Rufforth village and Helmsley, north of York, about the BSE outbreak of the time, and about the farming industry in general.
