American television hasn’t had a hit show about farming since Green Acres almost 50 years ago.
That’s all changing now! The August/September issue of Farm & Ranch Living—the magazine for readers who love the land—takes a look at the new television show Farm Kings to see how Joe King and his clan are making farming cool again.
Get a glimpse behind the scenes:
· While Joe King, 29, and his 10 siblings, nine boys and one girl, grew up farming, they took things into their own hands by getting a loan to start Freedom Farms on a property their mother owns in Pennsylvania
· Joe hopes the show will draw more young people back to the land, especially at a time when so many people are disconnected from where their food comes from
· As you might expect, the Kings quickly discovered that farming with a camera crew takes some serious time and patience, but they think it's really worthwhile to inspire and encourage entrepreneurial spirit
