Disney has announced that the German documentary series, “Farm Rebellion”, is going to be released on Disney+ as a Star Original in many countries around the world, including in the United Kingdom, Ireland, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and Germany on Wednesday 14th June 2023.
Benedikt Bösel was an investment banker, but then the financial crisis hit and with it the question of meaning. Today, he is a farmer, a visionary and heads a young team that is testing a radical new type of agriculture in the fight against climate change. Together with experts such as Auma Obama from Kenya, Jean-Martin Fortier from Canada and Ernst Götsch from Brazil, the change must succeed. Together with his team and his partner Tess Ward, Benedikt wants to prove that their regenerative experiments can be a role model for the whole world. For career changer Paula the farm becomes a chance to live a different life. For José and Lea it is the first step on the way to their own farm in Chile. Benedikt and his team are starting a tough year, fighting against drought and their own limits.
Benedikt took over the farm from his family in 2016. He grew up in western Germany. As a child, he spent his vacations in Madlitz, in nature. After some service with the mountain troops, he studied business finance at the University of Durham, and went into investment banking. After earning a master’s degree in agricultural economics at Humboldt University, he then worked in real estate and venture capital, before fully committing to farm life.
Benedikt now works passionately towards regenerative organic agriculture, trying to find solutions for the challenging conditions caused by the increasingly unpredictable and erratic climate. In 2022, Benedikt was named Farmer of the Year in Germany by the Federal Minister of Agriculture.
