I spent the better part of 2012 working on a book on the history of corn/maize. I haven’t heard from the publisher yet when the book will be released — and when it is, I’ll probably start a separate blog for that (we’ll see). But I thought it might be fun to share this video, which went viral earlier this year. I interviewed Greg, the eldest of the three “Peterson Farm Bros,” because I had a lot of older, tremendously experienced farmers and experts in the book, and I thought that it would be good to show the younger, hipper side of farming–the future of farming, as it were. Because the Peterson Farm Bros have a great message that I think a lot of folks need to know: without farmers, we don’t eat. I have found that a lot of folks in big cities have lost sight of that. However, the brothers manage to get the message across in a very entertaining way.
