Sweet Soil shares the stories of four family farms, a natural foods store committed to supporting them, and a community’s passion for fresh, local food. Set to a toe-tapping, fiddle-driven soundtrack by local musicians, Sweet Soil captures the spectacular autumnal beauty of the Berkshire Hills of western Massachusetts at harvest time.

Local farm-based musicians supply the soundtrack for this 21-minute profile of four farms and their relationship to the Berkshire Co-op Market in Great Barrington, Massachusetts:
- Equinox Farm is a pioneer in the salad greens business.
- Rawson Brook Farm has been producing Monterey Chèvre from its herd of 50 goats for over 20 years.
- Thompson-Finch Farm grows diversified vegetable crops and pick-your-own fruits.
- High Lawn Farm is one of the last dairy farms in the state to produce, bottle and distribute milk under one roof.
Filmmakers Laura Meister and Erica Spizz reside in Berkshire County and share a passion for fresh, local food. By putting a face on a farmer, they personalize the process of bringing food from field to table.
