Nine Maine dairy farmers are in danger of losing their farms when their national milk distributor fires them. Banding together, they launch their own milk company, MOO. By any normal measure of a startup, MOO Milk has been a success. But stakes are high as they struggle to navigate the treacherous waters of launching a new business, with bills piling up and tensions running amok. Betting the Farm is a quintessentially American story about intrepid small business owners struggling to survive in a world dominated by corporate profiteers.
