This Is The Farm

Series produced by Evan Driscoll

Series image

Listen to what farmers, both young and veteran, are doing all around the great state of Texas and beyond. We interview farmers who are in the fields actively producing food, and pick their brain for insights into how to get started as a young, beginning farmer. We invite you to join us in the inspiring insanity that is young farming.

We actually visit each farmer in the field on this show, and provide in-depth medium form interviews with them. Giving each farmer the time to fully articulate their personal philosophies and back stories gives each episode a deeper, and more nuanced, picture of the challenges and rewards of the farming profession. Edited thoroughly and concisely against the backdrop of contemporary music, This Is The Farm is all at once instructive, entertaining, and inspiring.
