In the bucolic English countryside, Stephen Hook runs the family dairy farm, Hook and Son, a lo-fi, raw-milk anomaly resisting hi-fi, high-consumption norms.

Farming is a hard life and an even harder business, but Moo Man shows how one man and his family make it work by turning their back on big business, staying small and lovingly caring for each and every cow.
