Zach Johnson, the “Millennial Farmer” is a 5th-generation farmer who’s spent his life growing, working, and learning on his family’s farm. His wit and dry sense of humor appeal to children and adults alike. A product of the millennial generation, his appreciation of new technology blends with his old-fashioned work ethic, and he offers a unique ability to deliver his message in a way that resonates with lifelong farmers as well as those with no knowledge of agriculture.
With growing consumer awareness about where their food comes from, Zach has identified the need for an independent voice from the front lines of agriculture. Zach actively promotes agriculture by sharing his day-to-day experiences in the agriculture world while providing farmer-to-farmer education to help facilitate a collaborative conversation between farmers and the public.

    Ok thays the saddest thing that is real, things aren't socially expected anymore, what's wrong with us, are we that much weaker then we were 30 years ago, and it must be true, cause look at the world's people today, better off economically but not mentally or just as humans, wonder if be better ( supposedly that is) is worse, hatd times has away of building character, wonder if we are to good for us to have the go to get'er dome anymore

    This an FYI for Ms. Mellenial farmer, just listenign to the latest podcast at work, (on lunch don't worry) and wanted to clarify not all of Canada gets milk in bags. Heere in Manitoba, we buy it it 4L jusgs, which would be about a gallon. I know for sure Ontario uses the milk bags, and maybe more Eastern provinces? I don't think much of the west does though. But can confirm Manitoba uses jugs. This has been your Canada facts update brought to you by me.

    You might consider getting a drone for the gopher trapper and get him going doing some video from aloft of your operations. Check out Sonne Farms site for examples. Corn harvest, putting up hay, etc. are really great from aloft. Been following him for a couple months.

    Just found (and subscribed) to your site, like what I've seen so far. Look forward to digging through past videos, some entertainment while "sheltering in place" from the corona virus. Spent many hours on John Deere 70 in the 1960s working summer fallow in Western Nebraska, so farming has a place in my heart. Viewing your operation reminds me of Mike Bloomberg saying he could teach anyone to farm. Just dig a hole, drop in a seed, cover it up, and add water. Sure Mike, let's see you hop into the cab, fire up, and plant some corn.

    Hi Zach, a wonderful video on both the planter and the tractor. You take it through all the paces doing what you need to do and critiquing as you go along. The technology on the planter is incredible and you show what it's doing and when it's not working well. The tractor is fantastic yet you let us know what are the few shortcomings that probably need changing. I love the screens, the smooth and quiet ride, and the fabulous lights -- all of which you highlight. John Deere has to be very pleased with an authentic, realistic, and honest evaluation of both pieces of beautiful green equipment. Thanks, Zach for what you do for both farmers and manufacturers. - Dean from Edina
