WTFCF S3, E5 Bonus Scene: A Real Family Farm – The Gibbs Kids Don’t Need Screen Time

Most kids today are obsessed with the digital world – it’s all about the screens they sit in front of, hold in their hands, or carry in their pockets.

It seems like an evolutionary time – maybe they’ll be the next generation of rocket scientists. But who’s going to work on the farm and keep us fed?

Well, that would be folks like The Gibbs Kids. We met them at their true family farm in central Georgia where everybody does a little bit of everything.

No cartoons and cereal in the morning for this gang – they report to the barn at 7 a.m. every day to take care of their jobs on the farm (around their school schedule of course!)

We hear a lot about the decline of the true family farm these days. It’s become a world of specialization and big agriculture – even though most of those companies are still family owned, they’re not exactly the picture of a family farm we have in our minds.

The Gibbs Family grow peas, beans, watermelons, flowers, and even have 300 head of cattle (and their own store on-the-farm and another in a nearby town!)

The teenage girls, EllaGrace and LizzyRae, manage the cattle by themselves. And even 9-year-old Cotton gets up early to start the variety of tasks he has daily.

In this bonus scene from Where The Food Comes From Season 3, Episode 5: A Real Family Farm, the trio had a chat with Chip Carter while mom and dad weren’t listening – and they still talked about how much they love life on the farm!

Don’t miss this very special episode Friday night at 9:30 p.m. and 12:30 a.m. on RFD-TV.
