The King family of Freedom Farms, who are known for growing everything from asparagus to zucchini, will air their lives on national television every Thursday at 9 pm (8 pm central) on the Great American Country (GAC) channel. The show follows Joe, the oldest of the 10 King kids and manager of the brothers, Tim, the head of produce, Pete, the “human harvester;” and Dan, the passionate wannabe-partner as well as mother Lisa, in the everyday goings-on of the operation.
Most ag families will be familiar with the drama of early-morning picking and working so closely with family members, but the exposure of agriculture to the mainstream is a new development in entertainment. With the family’s mission to bring Pittsburgh area customers, “fresh, local food done right,” viewers are sure to experience the highs and lows of a grower’s life right along with the King family of Freedom Farms.
