Three brothers from Kansas and their little sister have done more for the face of farming in the last couple of weeks than any ag group has been able to do in a very long time. I’m referring to the Petersons who in their spare time from working the family farm created the new viral video YouTube sensation “I’m Farming and I Grow It.” After having enough of being looked down upon by their “city cousins” Greg, Nathan, and Kendel decided they would take it upon themselves to show the world the very real face behind agriculture. And they thought it didn’t hurt to show consumers what actually happens on a real working family farm. Since it was first posted on June 25 they’re video has been viewed by more than a million people. For the most part the video’s reception has been very good, with even the occasional comments of the boys’ “hotness” thrown in. This video was a shot of good news that the agricultural community so desperately needed during these hard times of fighting anti-ag activists, while trying to defend the right to farm. Let’s all learn from the Peterson brothers and keep the momentum going.
