A+E Networks-owned History Channel is to provide an authentic look at five family-run farms in the forthcoming The American Farm from BoBCat Studios, the multi-platform prodco founded by Thom Beers, Jeff Conroy and Sarah Bernard.
The eight-part agricultural series will provide an intimate portrait into the lives of farming families as they feed both their loved ones and the nation’s population, all while navigating the daily challenges of farm management and agribusiness over the course of one full year.
Shot on location across the U.S., The American Farm will feature the Boyd family, from Boyd Farms in Baskerville, Virginia; the Griggs family, from Griggs Farms in Humboldt, Tennessee; the Meyers family, from Meyers Farm in Bethel, Alaska; the Robertson family, from Bohanan Farm and Contoocook Creamery in Contoocook, New Hampshire; and the Sunderland family, from Sunder Creek Farm in Chester, Utah.
BoBCat’s Beers, Conroy, Bernard and Jeff Brick serve as executive producers alongside History’s Mike Stiller and Mary Donahue.
The American Farm premieres on History on April 4 at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
