I am a 5th generation family farmer from West-Central Minnesota. The recent interest in food, combined with a large amount of 'misinformation' has driven me to start this channel. I hope to be someone people can relate to and trust when they question how their food is grown and raised. I also hope to become a 'smarter' farmer through my experiences with this channel. I strongly believe we must have an open mind and a willingness to learn about others, or we cannot move forward as one. My goal is to build the connection between farmers and consumers by facilitating a collaborative conversation amongst everyone. I do this by sharing my day-to-day farming experiences, my opinions on certain topics, and occasionally visiting other farms and businesses to help better understand other farming and business practices. There is no limit to where this channel may go, so please join me!!

  • Think of all that you could accomplish if you didn't waste that 4 hours a day asleep.....

  • corn whiskey belongs in a bottle.. not in our fuel supply. It destroys everyone elses machines so these guys can get rich.

  • The sign i saw is True...With out Farmers i Wud be Hungry,Naked And Sober....

  • At 0:39 apparently even the 9870 is noticing this is a tough year and has taken up drinking!

  • Years ago I had seen a farmer that posted a video of how he dealt with his down corn on his farm. I believe he was running a Gleaner. He said he had a simple solution and low and behold he did it with a bean head. I believe it was a old school augur head. I had no clue to that point that it would work that well and never really even thought about it. Most would just rough it to get it out.

  • That header looks like it does a pretty good job considering the corn is pretty much laying completely down. 👍🏼

  • Looks a lot like Northern Illinois corn. Had terrible winds and rain this past summer and it did some significant damage to a lot of crop here.

  • call it stuck Saturday

  • Awesome 😄👍

  • Very interesting harvest, of course interesting isn't a nice word in this instance :( Have you considered making another 'Talk with Dad' video? Maybe this video could be about the difficulties he's faced in the past. This seems a good harvest season to remember other difficult harvests. Love the video!

  • Super Mario Bros!!!!!!!

  • Do you guys use a corn reel at all? We bought one back when Pioneer was falling down all the time

  • Where was the "hey...are you ok?" with the lollipop? :)

  • Could you explain to those of us that know absolutely nothing about farming other than what you've shown us, how does crop insurance work, for all the loss you're dealing with?

  • Mamma said there’d be days like this.

  • I sure hope you guys get to test out the new John Deere X9 Combine they reviled in Germany this week !!!!

  • Morning Zach,Just wanted to give you a thumbs up on your Jim Varney impressions! Brings back good memories. Farm on!

  • MAAAHHHMMMM! I got grain dust on my GoPro!

  • You call it "doing donuts"...I call it "cleaning the mud off the treads". Work smarter, not harder.

  • Where is the s780 combine

  • Are you going this year

  • Set the auto steer and hammer down we have had problems like that in popcorn. We have also resorted to the old flex head for the stuff that if flat as a pancake. Mother Nature sure has been a pain in the a$$ this year.

  • That looks tough. Get plenty of rest and don’t forget to eat properly. Also try to remember as tough as it is, be grateful you have a crop to harvest and some awesome tools to get the job done. I bet some of previous generations struggled even more and with those conditions may have lost a whole harvest. Keep up the good work.

  • Hey I have a sound that I make when I’m told to go get another socket, or told to go clean the mud off the cutter bar. Some other random jobs too. It goes like this, Tsssssssss.

  • Is it the hybrids fault or just because of to much rain and late harvest because of the wet spring?

  • Ahh man, I feel for you. Life isn't ment to be easy and unfortunately the corn gods aren't on your side atm.

  • My dad always referred to corn in this situation as "sexy corn". That's because it lays down for anything! A little dad farmer humor.

  • There’s a name for people who climb around on corn heads, at night, out in a field all by themselves.....”Statistics”

  • 🚜 🚜 🚜 🚜 🚜

  • 🚜 🚜 🚜 🚜 🚜

  • RIP Floater.. 11/2019

  • Nice video do you ever think you’ll switch to a self folding capello header

  • How did the corn from f2f genetics yield for you.

  • Endrows

  • What kind of sun glasses are those? Great job getting unstuck.

  • Down corn, we had an ENTIRY FIELD like this 2 years ago, it's sad, but dont give up!

  • Maybe it's been said before. I'm relatively new to the channel, but I would LOVE to see the MFer demo a red tractor and harvester for a season.

  • Just thinking, u could take your soybean header. Some guys here in Denmark do that to take corn

  • U ever try your draper header on the downed corn

  • Having fun yet ?

  • Quick uninformed, uneducated question... did he ever pull his new guidance system off the agco before returning it??

  • Penguin....

  • You have my sympathy Zach, we’re currently experiencing one of the wettest autumns in the UK, only got 20% of our sowing done where as normally we’d be completed by now


  • Cut to emotional music and acting...CLASSIC!!!

  • Good News Today: Eh. USDA screwed up and everything in your bins is worth more than you thought. @2:45 You ever drive a two row corn picker on a `Super-M'? It never beeps at ya, but they cost an arm or a leg.

  • Stop poking everything, that isn't what you learn in first aid man xD

  • He said sensitive, a millennial concerned about sensitivity. Sorry, couldn't resist. Awesome video, I really enjoyed the honest side by side comparison, wish more industries would do these to this level.

  • That corn must have been hit hard with the wind. I’ve never seen any corn lay over that bad down here in South Carolina.

  • I call shenanigans! A millennial who recognizes that a being in a crappy mood no matter how well deserved doesn’t solve any problems. Don’t believe it. You worked on getting over it and focus on the solution instead of dwelling on the problem? So naive, I thought we were supposed to quit, go eat a veggie burger and Waite for somebody else to fix it.

  • Do yourself a favor and plant pioneer👍

  • 2:23 the hose is leaking i see it

  • Where does the unit of "acre" come from? Just curious

  • i'm your biggest FAN, can you give my YT channel a shoutout? haha :)

  • 'Dealing with Mother Nature, paying the bank for very Expensive equipment, dealing with Breakdowns, and everything else... IT AIN'T EASY BEING A FARMER....' …… just sayin'

  • “The wheels look fine” 2 minutes later wheel falls off! 😂

  • When you are clearing the header, PLEASE kill the engine, it is NOT worth the small risk, because the unthinkable could happen. I have personally seen where someone has tried clearing a round baler and not killed the engine, they did not go home.


  • I suffer from Beepophobia and that is an intense dislike of technology beeping when you turn a device on, a machine on, select a function, shut something down, something runs low (like fuel) when you already have a gauge, don't engage a seat belt just to move a vehicle 5yards and many more beeping situations. Beeps should be banned!

  • Some of my best days have been spent behind the wheel of a combine. Did I mention some of my worst, too?

  • 300 foot long jiffypop

  • i never get sick of "are you ok, you ok?" while poking or kicking.. makes me laugh everytime!!!

  • Just got done listening to the latest episode of Off the Husk. Can't wait for Bill Nye to talk about cpls on the next episode. Bye bye now

  • Zack you old dog just saw you on CBS, great interview well done, Millennial farmer for Senator.

  • Not a farmer. Kinda something I think I might like to do but when you live in a townhouse it might be kinda hard.

  • Put your camera out side when you go through water please

  • Now there is such a thing as harvesting in the spring

  • You are struggling because of all that green paint on your farm

  • Wow! theres a machine for everything. Tractors are like grown up toys! so many accesories

  • Ever heard of DEKALB?

  • Go home zack and get some. timeout

  • Sorry reposting didn’t realize was on sons account lol. Also some editing Hang in there Zach and everyone else on the farm. What makes your channel so great is that it helps a person like me who has never farmed realize how hard it can be. I always new farmers were hard working people but until I started watching your channel I never knew what a farmer went through to get their harvest in. You have opened the eyes of a none farmer from Michigan. Thanks to all the farmers everywhere

  • Sweetie is falling asleep! Nap time!

  • you know he’s frustrated when he cusses on camera 😂in all of his videos that i’ve been watching for almost 2 years this is the first time i have ever heard him cuss on camera.

  • Thank you allowing me in on your day. Watching you harvest in water and ice was fascinating to me. I had no idea of what farmers face during harvest. I feel more connected to the world of farmers through your videos. I truly hope for you and your crew through the remainder of the season. And I am a bit wondering... whether your filming for this channel is helping or hindering you.

    • I was going to comment along the same lines about how interesting the videos are, but this post is so much more eloquent than what I had in mind. But I agree 100%

    • Thank you for watching and for the kind words! There are definitely times when dealing with the camera is an additional pain, which is why there are not quite as many videos this harvest. Overall though, this channel has been a great thing for us so I certainly can't complain about it!

  • Awesome vids 👍

  • Hang in there Zack i love your videos so let me ask you this once u finish harvest how do u get it to market

  • Thank you for all u do to feed us silly city folk. Also an additional thx for showing us how things work on a real farm.

    • demanding on equipment. You would think the manufacturers would make their parts last a lot longer. But then their parts department would go out of business so I get it.

  • Man i know your pain... We're in the midst of our bushfire prevention slashing, so running two tractors with 8' HD slasher decks behind em all across our national parks doing fire breaks and track edges. Its absolutely brutal work on the machines and we've been plagued with problems this year. Started 4 weeks late because the weather wouldnt cooperate and the grass didnt start to cure on time, now its gone the other way and everything's crispy and dry and we're working around fireban days and shitting ourselves every time we hit a rock in case we start a fire. We've been going two weeks, had one slasher shred its PTO shaft clutch and had to rebuild that, then the trailing wheel let go. Then a sensor on the clutch pedal of our Massey failed and locked the transmission into limp mode. Fixed that and the tractor died halfway up a hill on a two lane highway because a decade of slashing has build up enough chaff in the fuel tank that its being picked up by the intake and blocking up the lift pump strainer, so now we're playing a game of chicken with the fuel gauge to get it as low as possible to flush the tank out, without running out of fuel halfway up a hill offroad! And just to complete our week this week, I flicked a rock forwards with the slasher, bounced it off the front tyre and shot it into the side door of our New Holland and shattered it. $1200 for a window and at least a week and a half before it gets here because its gotta come from Sydney and you cant get freight in and out of Sydney easily at the moment because of the bushfires! I dont think its ANYONES year this year if you drive tractors!

  • Sorry about bad grammar!!

  • Hang in there Zach and everyone what makes your channel so great is that it helps a person like me how has never farmed how hard it can be. I always new farmers are hard working people but until I started watching your channel I never knew what a farmer went through to get their harvest in. You have opened the eyes of a none farmer from Michigan. Thanks to all the farmers everywhere.

  • Can you use your bean header on that corn ? It looks like that’s wind damage by the way all the stalks are facing the same way more or less ! Truth be told ! I told Jim NOT to have a kegger in that field last summer but he went and had one and that’s why the corns laying down , sorry Jim about throwing you under the bus but when you invite 200 fairly large people to a field party and not invite me , well that’s what you get ! Lol

  • People that are not into farming will never understand how it feels seeing your hard work in such bad shape. It's mentally challenging to cope with that because in the end it all comes to $$$ and how to go again next season. I've been there, done that, know the feeling. Good luck mate, keep it up we all have bad years and less bad years :)

  • Forrest Gump!!! Great reference!

  • Never seen corn down like that ever??? It's not even uniform like blown down corn! How many rocks have picked up so far? Do you figure it's a fungus on the root or is it the stalk breaking?

  • I don't know why I got to keep going back and liking this video I know I liked and commented on it and it just disappeared

  • happy gilmore and forest gump reference in one video.. fantastic lol

  • Hi thought we had poor conditions this harvest very wet at least we didn’t have any frost enjoy the videos keep up the good work

  • This is love

  • Zach needs a snickers

  • more food for the deer!

  • Sorry about all the down corn mite just have to get the Draper out

  • Swamp A$$ ……..

  • Chin up mate! You'll get there 👍

  • it flipped because its case
