Blue Collar meets Green Acres. That's how Comedian, Tim the Dairy Farmer, describes the release of his first album through a production company owned by famed comics Larry "The Cable Guy” and Jeff Foxworthy.
The 50-minute album is called 'Farm Raised' and will be released by Git-R-Done Records on July 20th. 'Farm Raised' will be available throughiTunes, Google Play, Amazon, Spotify, and Pandora. To purchase an actual hard copy CD of the album 'Farm Raised' visit www.timthedairyfarmer.com.
I talked with Tim who says the album naturally focuses a lot on farm life and his experiences as a dairy farmer. “There’s a lot of humor on the farm,” Tim said. “If you’ve ever been on a farm or even just driven by a farm, you’re gonna get it.”
Tim, who is a third-generation farmer and maintains an ownership stake in a Florida dairy, has been performing standup comedy for over 16 years, including for numerous agriculture organizations and companies.

I'm pretty sure that most of you have been involved with an activity centered around a tailgate. That's part of why a new tv show is named, From the Tailgate.
In this week's program you're going to learn all about it. The show is hosted by Jamie Johansen, Honey Creek Media. You know her. Our Jamie. Well, Jamie started her own company during the time she was doing work for us and with her sister, Joanna, they have acquired a growing number of projects, including this one. Cindy and I can't tell you how proud we are of them and the work they do. We're still keeping the door open to collaborate on projects when we can.
So, let's learn about Jamie's show. The program starting airing a week ago on KOLZ, Ch. 27 Springfield, MO, Nexstar Media Group.
In this week's program we talk about how the show came about, what kinds of topics Jamie is covering and some of her philosophy about the need for this kind of programming. Jamie is putting her farming background to good use in her agricultural communications career! She is still raising cattle with her husband Kevin and is now having more time to spend with her daughter Harper who this week is showing cattle and pigs which are a first for Jamie.
You can watch the show each Sunday at 5:30pm and it is repeated Saturday at 5:30am and 9:30pm. The show will also be available online very soon.
