Niels is 79 years old and one of the last idealistic farmers in the agricultural country of Denmark. He makes some of the world’s finest products, praised by the consumers, prized by the world’s best restaurant, NOMA in Copenhagen, and nursed in harmony with the universe. But Niels’ ways of farming in accordance with the planets and the primal instincts of the animals are not too popular with the authorities. They are threatening to withdraw his license to keep cattle, the buildings are deteriorating, and with no successor to take over, Niels risks seeing his life fall apart. Is Niels’ way of pre-industrial farming actually the most modern way of farming? He produces healthy and tasteful products but is fighting against rules set by the industrial farming culture. What effect will these rules have in the long term on our crop, food and animals? And what effect will it have on planet Earth and the universe? Farmer Niels has an idea about this, and with his stubbornness and insight he will fight every day to pass this knowledge onto us.
