The ‘Herenboeren’ (gentlemen farmers) movement is an upcoming food movement in the Netherlands of citizens/consumers who start growing their own food. Collectively they run a farm and employ a farmer. It’s a kind of CSA in which the community shares all risks and benefits. Home Grown portrays three of these ‘Herenboeren’: Geert, the ideologist of the movement, Monic a seasoned gentlewoman farmer and Eric who tries to start a ‘Herenboeren’ farm. The logic of the ‘Herenboeren’ concept is compelling: direct linking farm to fork, producing tasty unprocessed food, circular mixed farming aso. But in practise starting a farm is far from easy. The documentary also investigates the potential societal effects of the ‘Herenboeren’ way of farming. Can it develop into a viable alternative for industrial food production? Experts like the Dutch minister of Agriculture share their thoughts on this.
