In June of 2012, Greg and his brothers released a video on YouTube entitled, “I’m Farming and I Grow It.” It quickly went viral, receiving over 8 million views. Since then Greg and his brothers have released 2 more videos and are now up to 26 million total views on YouTube. The videos have given Greg many opportunities around the country to talk about agriculture and he is passionate about the future of the industry.
