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.

    You have such compassion for what you do, and for helping other farmers by promoting things on your channel that supports them. It shows in how many people follow your page and watch your videos. So glad that the veggie boys mentioned your channel on one of their videos. Keep on keeping on!! Hopper you enjoy some down time this winter

I don’t think I’ve seen one video where you haven’t at least TALKED about helping someone else out, or given someone else exposure to promote what they have going on. And THAT is what made me stick around. New sub here! Keep it up! 💪🏾🙌🏾

    I’m sure there are plenty of people who will think my comment is untrue but I’ll say it anyway, Farmers might be the very last truly genuine people left on this rock that will go out of their way to help another and not ask what’s in it for me?? Before everyone gets crazy I have the absolute highest respect for the volunteer first responders n the military. Still I have to say that Zachs statistic of farmers only making up 1% puts fear in me because in my opinion once they are gone then the last true Americans will be too.

    My family was always dairy farmers in rural northeastern Pennsyltucky. My Uncle was an early innovator and the first in our area to own a round baler. It was a Saturday, early summer, 1978 or 1979, over 35 acres of top quality alfalfa/clover mix down and ready to bale, rain coming on Monday. He collapsed while doing the evening milking and had to have emergency surgery. Nobody knew how to run his round baler, hell, he barely knew, it was such a novelty at the time. I remember the entire community coming together with square balers, wagons, and family. There were 3 or 4 balers, 2 or 3 haulers, and 10-15 people in the hay mow trading off and putting up over 3,000 square bales in one Sunday afternoon, milking his cows and keeping things going til he recovered. I was just a young pup at the time, but, the feeling of community and giving back has never left.

    In May, 1975 my dad had to have an 8hr back surgery, I left school and quit my job to go home to do his farming so he would have a crop to sell. One day in late June 17 tractors with cultivators showed to help me get the cotton plowed. The local fuel supply showed up with a fuel truck to make sure everyone had fuel all day. Many people came in with food and drink. In the fall they came back to harvest the crop. I can not tell you how proud I was and still am of all those people. I have been trying to pay it forward ever sense. Hats off to the farming community of west texas. Zack, praise on for doing what you do. 👆👆

    Zach - I have a similar story of my Dad having a health issue (twice) on our farm when my brother and I were too young to help, where the neighbors all stepped in to complete the field work to allow us to continue farming. It was very rewarding for me to be able to pay it forward, when I recently volunteered for Farm Rescue in South Dakota for a farmer who had experienced a severe ATV accident. I had a chance to meet one of your neighbors who is a great guy, a long-time volunteer with Farm Rescue. As a volunteer and sponsor of Farm Rescue, thank you for your efforts to create awareness and potential donors with your audience.

    In 1985 my dad was caught in a PTO when he was unloading silage out of a ratchet wagon. I was 5 at the time. Dad spent almost a 1 1/2 months in the hospital he was pretty bad. It was amazing the the out pouring of help that we got. Dad had a farrow hogs as well as a BUNCH of feeder pig. Also had harvest to finish. The neighbors helped as well as a lot of the community. I helps as much as a 5 year old could by cleaning crates scraping platforms for feeders. We were blessed. Then in 1994 dad got struck by lightning. By this time I was 14 I took on pretty much the operation or tried neighbors still helped. I and Dad still going running when any neighbors need anything we feel owe it to them for ALL that they have done to help us.

    Zack I absolutely loved the episodes on turkey farming and bison ranching (bison my next step). I know what family means and I just love hearing of the 4th, 5th,6th or more generational farms. My family actually came here to Manitoba in 1821 but unfortunately lost the family farm during the dirty thirties. Here in southern Manitoba a man took very sick last fall (2019, not covid) and usually it would take him a week to combine his fields. There were so many volunteers to help out the Mrs. (who was over her head with worry about the Mr. and the farm) they combined his fields in a day and still had time to put on the fall supper. Good luck and God Bless Joe Scott

    I don't care for a on-line concert or whatever. John Deere better look after their tractors and equipment. At the moment I have a 7320 with the IVT out. Guess what ? John Deere doesn't supply parts for fixing a IVT so I am looking at 33000$CAD replacement gearbox on a 10000 hr tractor, which made my 'old' 7320 into a 'throw-away' tractor instantly. Really? a 'throw-away' John deere tractor? I don't mind Fendt's , but those guys rebuilds their Vario's for 10K. O.K. then look for a replacement 7230R! And people from everywhere start shouting at you : "stay away from those things" They nothing but problems. Not all very big, but lots of them. So here I am: a regular farmer running mostly John Deere equipment, with a throw-away tractor and no decent replacement. So: I don't care a shit about a concert. -END-OFF-RANT-
