The Peterson Farm Bros Sing About Agriculture’s Worth

I'm Farming and I Grow it

The USDA tells us to: “Know Your Farmer, Know Your Food.” The American Farmland Trust reminds us: “No Farms, No Food.” Powerful messages indeed.

And then there are the Peterson brothers — Greg, Nathan, and Kendal — from Kansas.

They farm. They sing. And they’ve gone viral to the delight of millions.

After writing funny, farm-friendly lyrics to LMFAO’s hit “I’m Sexy And I Know It,” these three brothers — who’ve branded themselves as The Peterson Farm Bros — have found a fresh way to focus a well-deserved spotlight on the people who grow our food. With the help of their 11-year old sister, they recorded a video of “I’m Farming And I Grow It,” posted it on YouTube, and garnered more than 2.8 million views in a little more than a week. You’ll smile as you watch these hardworking brothers sing about their lives on the farm and the fact that they: “Gotta feed everybody. Gotta feed everybody. Gotta feed everybody. (Uh-huh) I work out. (side!)” They dance too — in the fields, on tractors, and with their cows. (Just wait until you see them do the sprinkler.)

The brothers’ message is incredibly relevant: Agriculture is important! On a Fox and Friends interview, Nathan shared: “We really want agriculture to be promoted. I think a lot of people overlook it — how important it is where everyone’s food comes from.” News outlets and bloggers from as far as Australia have covered the fab farmers. And enjoying the video is the best 3 minutes, 32 seconds I’ve spent in quite awhile. So watch it. Share it with your friends. Like them on Facebook.

It’s amazing how three young guys can make farming look so good. Way to go.
