Dayjobbers moonlight as farmers and ranchers in boutique agriculture adventures showcased to inspire new producers.

The Project

Homegrown Across America celebrates day jobbers from every walk of life moonlighting as farmers, ranchers and producers of related end products- America's unsung heroes and true grit entrepreneurs.  Within a decade, over 50% of the independent ranchers now ranching and a large amount of farmers now farming (stats vary) will be facing retirement age.  What will we eat, where will it come from?  Will corporations and chemical companies dictate our foodistic future? 

In every bite we trust......

Our Plan

Through our "you can do it" entertaining and informational approach we expose you, the curious omnivore, stalwart herbivore or versified hunter gatherer to ultra cutting edge ag tech, emerging science and true grit triumphs and related stories.

 

Leverage our success

Since we have already produced a very successful show on broadcast and cable networks, we have distribution in place to digitally travel to the far reaches of TV Land, where hundreds of millions of eyeballs reside in syndication country where it will play and play...just some food for thought!  Internet TV is still in it's infancy, as satellite internet is still too slow for downloading large video files to service people residing outside major urban areas.   Getting a show on cable creates many more fans.

 

 

‘” The population of U.S. agriculture is poised to make a dramatic change:

-Half of all current farmers are likely to retire in the next decade
-U.S. farmers over age 55 control more than half the country’s farmland .
-The number of entry-level farmers has fallen by 30 percent since 1987.
-New farmers make up only 10 percent of farmers and ranchers.

New farmers have different needs than established farmers and ranchers.” Center for Rural Affairs -Jan 2012

    Online premier for you and your freinds plus recommend your favorite worm wrangler, botanicals artisan, nutraceuticalists or bee charmer, send us a great lead on an agricultural entrepreneur who embodies sustainability,winning attitudes and restores confidence in the process so we can trust every bite or schmear. Pepper about this tip of salty advice for anyone you know with a water softener:: That salt in your tank is great for your hard water, but can be harsh on flowers for the bee kind and fruit bearing plants. Simply plumb a two connector tap on the outside line intercepting the water supply before the softener and reconnect your irrigation there to supply your flora a no sodium solution and watch them flourish! Why the two way connector? By avoiding other unecessary voluminous softend water usage (dog washing, deck rinsing, pool filling)- you'll save energy and wear and tear on your softening system. Also, check out reverse polarity saltless systems!
