The American Family Farmer Show is the weekly voice for small, independent farm owners, as well hobby farmers and all of those interested in eating natural foods that make as few stops as possible from the farm to the table.
The weekly program is packed with information and advocacy for the beleaguered family farmer, as well as those who support these farmers and the food that they produce, as an alternative to the processed food options that occupy most grocery stores.
American Family Farmer is hosted by Doug Stephan, lifelong broadcaster and a dedicated lifelong family farmer! Stephan is the owner/operator of several dairy farms in the Boston suburb of Framingham, MA under the umbrella of Eastleigh Farm.
“I have been around cows all my life,” said Stephan. “I spent all my free time around the animals as a young boy.” Stephan continues, “I have become more involved on a wider scale, to the point now where I have several hundred Jersey dairy cows, which provide us with the raw milk we sell, along with cheeses, ice cream and various other diary-related products that have meaning to those in the locavore movement [people who choose to eat food locally grown and raised].” Stephan is a tell-it-like-it is advocate for the political and economic interests of the farmers this program is designed to serve.
American Family Farmer is a targeted revenue generator for stations, geared to a wide variety of advertisers specifically interested in reaching the farming community and the growing natural foods market.
