The Peterson Farm Brothers are back with their latest parody video that features two things many farmers appreciate: the classic riffs of AC/DC’s “Thunderstruck” and footage of tractors stuck in mud. “Tractorstuck” is the title of the brand new video from the farm celebrity siblings — Greg, Nathan, Kendal, and sister, Laura — who farm… Read More

It is great to to see that the Peterson Bros have struck gain with another great song parody to promote the story of agriculture.

I’m beginning to suspect these Peterson farm boys aren’t nearly as busy farming as they claim to be, as this latest parody video looks even more polished than the last one. All kidding aside, this latest video, based on the opening sequence of the “Fresh Prince of Bel-Air,” is a hoot, and a fantastic and… Read More

Got a minute? That’s about all it takes to start thinking about agvocating. You never know where your commitment will lead. That’s the word from Greg Peterson, the 23-year-old Internet phenom from the mid-Kansas PetersonFarm Brothers. Some of my University of Guelph agricultural communications students and I were lucky to spend time with Greg earlier… Read More

Kansas-based Peterson Farm Brothers — Gregory, Nathan and Kendal — haven’t just put together a fun new parody video, but they’re also using their music and blog to help share a message of environmental stewardship and sustainability.

The Daily Meal launched its “50 Most Powerful People in Food” list recently, ranking individuals… Read More

In an effort to gain respect, agriculture has long fought the public image of farmers as salt-of the-earth types, more at home in the barn than the boardroom. But recent high-profile media events involving farmers have captured the hearts and imaginations of millions of people…and suggest maybe image isn’t a problem after all. First, long… Read More

If you thought environmentalism was a recent invention, you may be surprised to learn that it was actually former Prime Minister John Diefenbaker, in 1971, that created a bill to declare a week that focused on environmental health. Today, “Canadian National Environment Week,” is celebrated the first week of June, in tune with the United Nations’ World… Read More

The Peterson Farm Bros might be American, but their latest effort gives a decisive nod to their northern neighbours with this Bachman Turner Overdrive parody, “Takin’ Care of Livestock.” All three brothers are joined by their sister in this livestock feeding frenzy, but it’s not just their parents that make a cameo! Farmers, farm kids,… Read More
