Thanks very much, John, for your farmer-crazy artist soul and the work you do on all these aspects, like the beautiful film that I enjoyed. It's an example for me of being true to your feelings and dreams. You're a torchbearer! Your supporter Marian.

To Farmer John, I saw "the real dirt" yesterday and I kept thinking about it, letting the scenes and the story go trouhg my mind over and over. 
The thing that strikes me most I think, is that you stayed true to your feelings from the beginning. And this way wasn't the easiest at all, and that finally you managed to make that fruitfull. That's really inspiring to me. I wish you good luck for the future!

Dear John and others involved,
Yesterday and today I saw the film on DVD. I ame very impressed, also of your dear father and mother, John. Your mother started filming already in 1950! So lucky you have all these films saved. I ame not coming the U.S.A. c.a. is too far away for me. But I ame very trilled and full of respect for those "alternative" Americans like you. Make the U.S.A. more beautiful! (Like an insect that stings)
All the best from fryslan and www.stoutenburg.nl (also summary in English), where I work.

Dear John, 
 
Thank you for the great documentary about your farm. The program aired this evening on Dutch television. We, two people living in oldest part of Amsterdam, really enjoyed the program and your effort and spirit put into Angelic Organics. If we are in Illinois one day, we really hope to visit your farm, and maybe even bring our really Dutch wooden farmer shoes to help you, just as we do over here. We wish you all the best for you and your farm. And if you are ever around, youíre always welcome in Amsterdam. 
 
Kind regards, 
 
Amsterdam, Holland

Dear People, 
Tonight I saw your documentary on Dutch TV. 
I was very happy that I tuned in on this program! 
 
As I have had a traffic accident 31 years ago I am not able physically to join in such a program, but I would like to give my respect to you and all the people that work on the farm!

Dear John, 
 
I am still the livestock teacher at the Warmonderhof in Dronten the Netherlands where I saw your film the first time and where I met you. We had a small conversation afterwards. 
 
For a few minutes ago your film was on the Dutch television. Although they have cut out several pages at was as emotional to see as the first time. Also because now I was looking together with my wife and daughter. They were also very impressed by the film. 
 
A have made a copy off it because I want the show it to my father soon. He is 81 years old now. I took over his farm in í81 and finished it after 15 years. I am sure it will be again a very nice and emotional watching. 
Thank you again for your beautiful film.

Your movie was shown yesterday by one of national dutch TV channels. I was deeply touched by the story, the spirit and the saga of humanity and land. I kindly ask you to advise how could I get a DVD copy of your movie since I would like very much to show it to my family. 
Sincerely

Dear John,

I just saw a documentary about your farm on a dutch tv-channel. i
thought it was very inspiring. I had to jump out of my bed, since i
was getting ready to go to sleep, to look up on your farm. Whenever i
will find the time to do so, i will be happy to apply as a volunteer.
This is just a short note to let you know that i have major respect
for the work you're doing and especially for the way you are doing it.
I will look into getting some spare time during summer 2007. You have
set up an amazing company, one that a lot of people all over the world
could learn from.
