These Farm Kings Know How to Run a Family Business

By: Kelsey Vala

Tune in to Cooking Channel tonight at 10pm ET for GAC’s Farm Kings and watch as the King family of Freedom Farms battle the weather and each other to bring fresh produce to the locals.

These burley brothers (with the help of mama bear Lisa) work the land while running a farm store and bakery. Keeping the business running -- from planning fall festivals and making homemade cider to planting and picking fresh crops -- requires all ten siblings working 7 days a week. While Lisa holds the family together and makes sure the work gets done fast (she can bake 30 pies in an hour), Joe, the oldest of the ten King kids, runs the show, making all the business decisions for Freedom Farms. Each family member has a crucial role in bringing it all together, whether it’s being “the plant doctor” (Tim) or “the human harvester” (Pete). From early-morning picking to late shifts at the bakery, this passionate family works hard to bring fresh food to hungry customers. With strong work ethics inspired by Lisa, it’s no wonder this family was born to farm.

Tune in to Farm Kings at 10pm ET on Cooking Channel. Then find out when to watch the all-new season 2 on GACtv.com .
