Farmers’ Almanac TV to Broadcast FarmAid Shows


I’ve never heard of Farmers’ Almanac TV, but they have announced plans to air 30-minute segments about Farm Aid on their show on Public Television.  Farmers Almanac TV, which started broadcasting shows in April of this year, has announced plans to produce three stories about the 21-year-old organization:  A history of Farm Aid, a story about one of the family farms that has benefited from Farm Aid programs and a story about the event iself.  The stories are scheduled to appear in the final episode of the show’s second season, which starts in January.

The Farm Aid episode is one of 13 episodes of the Farmer’s Almanac TV show, inspired by the Farmers’ Almanac.  So far, it is broadcast in 38 states.  They also plan to  make the three Farm Aid stories available on thier web site, in November, as a part of a special tribute to family farms this Thanksgiving.  You can check your local Public Television listings to find out when it will air in your area, or visit the FarmersAlmanic website.

Now, that’s just good tv!
