In the middle of the residential areas of Culemborg, The Netherlands, lies City Farm Caetshage. Here, since 2008, the farmers Todd and Boudien grow organic vegetables. Through vegetable packages and a farm shop, they sell their products to the inhabitants of Culemborg. For three months, Maria and Lotte worked and filmed at the farm.
The life of Todd and Boudien is slightly different than that of the average farmer. In cooperation with the municipality, the foundation board of Caetshage determined several targets. Besides the production of organic vegetables, the farm offers a working place for disabled people and several education programs. The film shows how Todd and Boudien, by working hard, manage to keep standing, without losing their ubiquitous enthousiasm. This makes their farm a unique place, where a variety of people likes to come and enjoy organic vegetables.
Caetshage has been selected for Regard Bleu #7 Film Festival (Zürich, Switzerland), Worldfilm Festival 2012 (Tartu, Estonia), Göttingen International Ethnographic Film Festival 2012 (Germany), BeeldVoorBeeld Film Festival on Cultural Diversity 2012 (Amsterdam) and Days of Ethnographic Cinema 2012 (Moscow, Russia).
