I’m Farming and I Grow It (@LMFAO Parody Video) Stories Behind It

This video is pure awesomeness from the Peterson Farm Boys in central Kansas. It is an agricultural version of one of today’s most popular songs — “I’m sexy and I know it” becomes “I’m farming and I grow it.” Love knowing that the kids who will run tomorrow’s farms are committed to the land and […]
