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.

Hi Zack, I’m just now watching this podcast. What years were your dad on the corn growers association? My grandfather was the president of the Ohio corn growers association in the late 90s. I’m not sure if other states ever meet together but they could have met before.

Love hearing the memories and the family history. Reminds me of times when my grandpa, uncles and cousins would tell their farming stories. Grandpa and most of the uncles are gone now, but the cousins are thankfully still with us. Anyway, these conversations are priceless. Thanks for recording this and sharing it with us.

I would like to see a video of show me your big tractors and Tristan video of removing green because I like it I watch videos of farmers doing nothing but moving around grain and I just watch the video before this video and you were listening to an author house podcast and I looked up and pretended I was in your tractor and I said well water if I could put a fold down TV screen but it's just a thought because I really like I really thought that it would be cool cuz you could just be on your tractor with your auto steering your auto drive on and you can just fold in mirror from your phone and you can watch TV in your tractor

Never been a fan of Pod cast's but I'm hooked on this one. My dad gave up farming when I was 9 and they used dinosaur turd's for fertilizer. Brings back memories both good and not so good. Thanks

Zach may i make a suggestion? These farm history pieces with your dad are good.Would it be possible to do one on the last 10-15 years? I get the impression there have been some big changes over the years! I think most would find it interesting. Possible things to include: How the farmed area has grown. How and when tech has changed things.The different machinery you've used. Any particularly good or bad years. Maybe even describe how a son (or daughter) takes over from their father - if its not too personal.

Enjoy family history n Off Husk podcast. I don’t mind product advertising as long it’s disclosed, WD 40 new products like chain spray, I brought WD 40 chain lube to try spray to see if makes difference. Another product advertising is farm machinery n my question when will ever going to see piece farm machinery/equipment in action if we were small farmers, yes we have small demonstration days but not all Tractor companies do demonstration days. In the long term if wanted buy equipment at least I seen benefits n problems on UZpost before able buy second hand purchase on farm machinery/equipment.

Hey Zac, I farm 3 hours north of you and my first cousin's son is 12 years old he is a city boy who plays farm simulator i think that is what it's called. But he was dying to ride with me while i was seeding wheat and i run all john deere equipment. He started to explain to me how he got excited about farming. He told me he watched this guy by Alexandria mn. Who went by the name of millennial farmer. Boy did we have a conversation after that. Lol

Question for Nate: What implement dealer at Jackson were you involved with? I grew up southeast of Sherburn in the '50's and early'60's and Dad bought a lot of equipment from Nafziger's in Alpha. Oliver Green! My son worked at Ag Chem in the '90's until they were bought out by Agco. He worked in the office and I guess they brought in their own people. Your former (sorta) neighbor.

My Wife.... WTF are you watching a corn farmer for? Me.... Because Race Car! My Wife.... what does that have to do with a Farmer? My first video I saw was you guys in Kansas running Car Owner Corey’s mod you guys were freaking hilarious. It turned me on to the content and I’ve been addicted ever since also figured there is no way this guy is getting rich farming so if my views cover 1 tire per race season then I get a laugh my wife gets annoyed and Zach gets a tire or some fuel 🤣

This was really cool to listen to. My father grew up on a potato farm in michigan. I always wondered how it would be to grow up on a farm back in the 70s. I hear stories of how my great grandfather could back up a tractor with two wagons in tandem in a straight line with his Minneapolis Moline!
