January on the Farm

The Peterson Farm Brothers — or Bros as they appear on YouTube – are fifth generation Kansas farmers, raising cattle and feed crops. The oldest brother, Greg, got his degree in agricultural communication, so in addition to farming, he works at getting out the story of what farming is like today, who the farmers are, and why it’s important to understand farming. Some of this is accomplished through clever song parodies, such as “I’m Farming and I Grow It” and “Farmer Style,” which went viral a couple of years ago.

However, the Peterson Farm Bros, with assistance from other family members, also create videos that document what work is like on the farm. A couple of years ago, they created the series “Life of a Farmer.” The short videos take the viewer one month at a time through the farming year. So, since it is now January, I’m interrupting the tale of my travels to share their January video.
