Uh, hello? Where have I been? Have you heard of the tv, the docu-reality show called Farm Kings on GAC? A show about an amazing mom, her 10 kids and their farming? I hadn’t. And they are nearly geographically right under my nose.
Well, the day that you realize that family is seriously practically your neighbors (as in less than 10 mi. away), that Freedom Farms sells pasture raised, antibiotic/hormone free chicken, beef and pork, non GMO foods, AND fresh flowers for all of those room makeover props and that they have their own tv show is the day you’re completely star struck. And your usually controlled crazy gets loose like the time I learned that Brett Michaels is from my hometown too. Craaaazy! The Kings are hard working good people and they live local! So in a small effort to support local business along with my shopping, I felt they deserved a bit of a “show off” in a DIY Show Off post.
And so even though I’ve eaten their pies and carved their pumpkins, Bri and I still couldn’t resist the temptation to make a point to stop by the Freedom Farms just down the road on the day their new season starts. I did have to pry myself away from the Farm Kings marathon leading up to the season premier. Okay, no need to whisper that I’m being borderline stalker crazy. I’m well aware. But it just seems so cool and now that I’ve had a chance to see a little behind the scenes to “tv-meet” the fam, I’m a fan.

Oh and I have to mention it – these are four of the brothers. No further comment needed. If you’re not familiar with who I’m referring to, here you go:
I’ve never been able to get on board with reality tv but this show and family has won over my heart. Since I raised two girls on my own for a very long stretch of time, I have to tell you that if I ever have the chance to meet Lisa, I’m giving her a big high five. Smart, strong and funny. And well, I did have the chance to meet her today but since I’m shy, I was too chicken to approach her. How do you do that anyway without being so awkward? So I purchased some fresh green beans and leaf lettuce, the Freedom Farms magazine then couldn’t resist a bouquet of beautiful fragrant flowers from Lisa’s Garden…
I’m pretty excited to have a very local place to shop for hard to find NON GMO food! I’ve been asking Bri to get started on a blog to share her wealth of non GMO knowledge (will keep you posted). A major obstacle to changing our diet has been the inconvenience and difficulty finding non genetically modified foods. So this is BIG!
So…who’s seen this? Who’s looking forward to the new season? Who’s watching today and tonight? And why didn’t you tell me?
New to you too? Meet the King family tonight (July 11th) at 9/8c on GAC. Check out more info here. You know where I’ll be on Thursdays.
