Farm Videos for Kids

The "Vrrrooommm - Farming for Kids" video series was written and produced by real-life farmer, Bill Wickham. It was created with one goal in mind: to provide fun and educational videos that help children understand more about modern day agriculture. By using all of the noise and action found on today's high-tech farms, we capture our viewer's attention allowing friendly Farmer Bill to deliver an important message about our nation's food system. Farmer Bill reminds children and adults that the food chain begins long before the grocery store. All four award-winning videos are available in both DVD and VHS formats.

The series consists of four videos:
