Stephen Hook runs a small dairy farm in East Sussex, a throwback in an age of mass production and processed foods. But dairy farming is not a life Stephen can recommend to the younger generation — after all, supermarkets pay him 27p for milk that cost 34p a litre. That’s why he’s decided to provide his milk direct to his customers, spending much of his time on the milk round. In this gentle, endearing doc — a surprise hit at Sundance — we step into Stephen’s world, as he lovingly tends to his herd, and allow us to understand some of the difficult realities he faces.
