As a young man, Sean served his country in the Coast Guard, but he soon became disillusioned. He decided to return to his hometown in Massachusetts where he slowly taught himself how to raise chickens and pigs. Over time, Sean finally worked up to running the farm for Blue Hill Restaurants. Eventually, he ran for office and was elected to the town council. In A Small Good Thing, we watch as Sean offers a different kind of service to his country – providing quality food and teaching innovative farming strategies that increases a community’s well-being through sustainability and health.
