Greg, Nathan, and Kendal Peterson found a modern-day way to bring a whole new dimension to farming when they began producing hilarious farm-based parody videos. Today, they create both humorous and educational videos that they share via two YouTube channels and on their social media pages (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Snapchat). With a combination package of parody videos, original songs, vlogs, and how to’s, the brothers have developed a massive following on their various social media outlets. They have become a beacon of useful information for other members of the industry, an inspiration for those considering entering the industry, and a catalyst for changing the views of people unaware of how the industry works and the impact it has on our way of life.
It’s because of their great work and creativity that we were thrilled to announce their induction into the Howes Hall of Fame. The first farm and agricultural inductee of the Hall, the brothers are known as engaging presenters of a treasure trove of knowledge relating to the industry. By creating immensely entertaining, yet relevant videos, they have carved a space where they can share information to help change perceptions on topics related to farming and agriculture.
“Ever since we began producing content, we have continued to realize a need to inform people about what we do in farming and in agriculture as a whole,” said Greg Peterson. “There are many misconceptions about modern day farmers, and we feel obligated to help correct some of those false impressions.” With an eye toward enlightening the public on where their food comes from as well as the boundless work behind it, they have piqued the interest of countless farmers and non-farmers alike.
Set on 2,500 acres, their thriving fifth-generation family farm itself is the ultimate testament to their dedication and success.
The work they are doing and demonstrating provides invaluable lessons to anyone tuning in. Dealing with droughts, expensive equipment, livestock, crop management, and so much more, the imparted wisdom from the brothers is sought out by many to tackle the numerous challenges this critical industry faces. For those reasons and more, Howes Products saw them as a wonderful fit for its Hall of Fame.
“We were honored to be inducted into the Howes Hall of Fame,” stated Nathan Peterson. “One thing we deeply appreciate is family. We thought it was pretty neat that like our farm, Howes Products is a fifth generation, family owned and operated company. It seems both our families have been doing things the right way for a long time! We are thankful to be recognized by such an upstanding company with such strong family values.”
