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 know, until I started watching your channel I had no idea the skill level it took to be a farmer.......I really thought it was as simple as dig a hole and plant a seed.....after watching your videos and others I now think of farmers in the same category as engineers and have to be a little of both today in the farming world...thanks for the education Zach.

@Galaxy It's like everything else you want to start to earn money, mostly you need some beforehand and the bigger your project the more you need. Hard work and the will to succeed helps but first you need money .

Depends on the amount it’s a lot of minor science but when you have big scale operations it’s like this^^ requires a lot of money tho kinda hard to startup a farm from scratch unless it’s a generational thing

FYI, if you don't have a hydraulic line fitting crimping tool, look into re- usable fittings. They are a real time saver. All you need is a cordless disc grinder to make a clean cut of the hose and a couple adjustable wrenches. No need to spend valuable time going to the dealer for a hose repair. These can be used as a permanent repair. First saw these on a 1956 Case crawler loader in 1980. Best regards, Jim, a brand new subscriber.

CHUCKLES, YA HAVE THINGS PRETTY SPOILED WITH THE COMPUTERS ECT, WE STOPPED farming shortly after no till become a more dominant way to seed. prior to that i would go over the land 3 times once deep til with anthydro, one with the field cultivator and some areas we hada go over two times with the feild cultivator, but where i am going with this is we had 4 big ol levers to push or pull to unfold the equipement and lower and raise it, the fourth one usually was never undone from the C frame of the degelman dozer frame we had on the 835 versatile, learning for experience do not in half asleep droziness acidently hit the C frame control, laughs just say it did make a sweet 6 foot wide flat as glass trail until you realised it was on the ground lol, only up it only hit the ground so maybe was aprox 1 inch of dozing depth, but it still hit the ground. when we went from the 835 to the 975 versatil it was no longer a problem the tires were bigger and the dozer C frame stayed 4 inches above the ground lol but if was a big enough rock to hit it it woke ya up lol,

The amount of joy you get from farming is contagious. I think that’s a main factor of what’s made your channel so successful.

10 Mph planting. I remember riding on my Grandpa's John Deere while he planted by bouncing seed off of a steel pan he mounted on the engine cover. (This was back in the 70's) He couldn't afford the fancy stuff and boy was he awesome at finding different ways to get the job done.

Farming: Chemist, geneticist, shipping and receiving, machine operator, parts guy, geologist, geographer, mechanic, fabricator, salesman, facilities maintenance, accountant, manager, trucker, and IT guy. When do you have time to be a farmer? And none of that is the stuff that takes you from the farm to promote awareness of farming. Or raising a family.... Geez...

I'm an interstate truck driver here in Australia (you lot call it OTR) and have been for well over 40 years, mostly servicing the farming communities. The last probably 20 years it has been specifically driving tippers carting (mostly) grain, fertiliser, gypsum, lime etc so even though I don't have an intimate knowledge of broad acre farming, I have enough exposure to have somewhat more than a layman's knowledge. It is really interesting to note the very different parameters between your kind of farming and ours. In THIS part of Australia, we are really dry, so TOO much moisture is rarely "a thing"..... rather the other way around. Typically, our "blocks" or paddocks (what you call fields) are probably a bit bigger and whilst we do grow a fair bit of corn in my specific area, it's generally on irrigation blocks, as is the other crops such as cotton, rice and so on. A large percentage of what we grow on broad acreage is serial crops, such as wheat and barley and the like..... and they are our winter crops. We sow in our area commencing on April 25th and harvest in late October/November, although in the North it all happens a month or two earlier. Remember, we're in the antipodes, so our seasons are the reverse of yours. It s interesting to note the different terminology you use....... such as "planter" (we call that a seeder)...... in fact MOST of your equipment, although it's the same or similar gear, has quite different names. Another difference seems to be that our cockies (farmers) store their fertiliser "on farm" prior to sowing (planting) so there's no waiting for the co-op etc. As a truckie, amongst our busiest times are the "fert season" (prior to planting and later, "top dressing") and harvest where everything goes bloody nuts as we cart from the city distribution points (usually up to 500 miles away) to "on farm". That usually lasts lasts about a month prior to sowing and about the same, later, after it rains for urea and the like for top dressing. The lime and gypsum is often carted in the NON fert seasons and applied long before sowing. Of course harvest is also ridiculously busy as well. In my case, that's also carted into our own grain handling facility and we tend to cart OUT of it for the rest of the year, giving us loads to port et al to pick up the fert in the fert season. All in all, this has been very interesting for me, comparing the similarities and differences between your style of farming and ours. Properties or land holdings in my area tend to be 50,000 acres and upwards...... and I dunno how that compares to yours. Anyway .... I gotta go make some miles! Oooroo Indy

Zach- I am loving this channel. I just found it recently and I am hooked. I have a small compact tractor on a small property but I can not stop watching. You do a great job of making it entertaining and educational for us folks that have no idea of the tech and work involved in feeding us. Two thumbs up!! Cheers!

Folks are starting to wake up to the fact that we need to support our farmers. There is new Facebook groups just starting to help support farmers. Shop Kansas Farms with 51,000 + members and now Shop Ohio Farms just started yesterday (5/10/2020) with already 100 members as of this post. My wife and I both think your daughter is downright adorable . Thank you for what you do
