The Farmer Who Hears the Grass Growing

Farmář, který slyší trávu růst

“I am a free ecological farmer” is the self-confident declaration of the 57-year-old Michael Simml. At the age of six, he sat on his father‘s lap and was giving him instructions during the ploughing. In 1984 – soon after Michael Simml took charge of the farm, he transformed it into an ecological enterprise. Today, with the help of his family he makes a rich harvest in the barren Bavarian woods. How he does it is being generously explained with body, heart and soul.
