Peterson farm bros: sunday, October 8, 2017

The Peterson Farm Bros are made up of Greg, Nathan, Kendal, and (honorary bro) Laura Peterson. We are siblings who farm together with our parents in Central Kansas, USA. Our farm primarily backgrounds beef cattle, but grows wheat, corn, alfalfa, milo, and soybeans as well. It has always been our goal to promote what we do on the farm with whoever we meet. In June of 2012, we decided to create a parody music video about farming. It was entitled "I'm Farming and I Grow It," and was a parody to the song "I'm Sexy and I Know It" by LMFAO. The song was a viral hit on YouTube and received over 6 million views in 2 weeks. It took our agriculture focused message and spread it all over the world! Since then we have used this platform to create many more videos about our farm and have traveled around the country to speak on what makes farming important. It is our goal to educate the general public on where their food comes from and what a real midwest family farm looks like!  For more information regarding the Peterson Farm Brothers, click on their website link.
