You may have heard of the Peterson Farm Brothers or have watched their video's on YouTube.  These brothers and their sister farm with their parents in Kansas and produce entertaining and educational videos focusing on the misconceptions of modern day farming.  They feel it is their duty to clear up these negative images by sharing these videos on social media and traveling around the country to perform and speak on advocating for agriculture.

Union, Adair, Ringgold and Clarke County Extension Offices have worked together to bring the Peterson Brothers to our area!  They will be coming to the East Union High School on Sunday, February 28 from 6 - 7 pm with a meet and greet to follow.  Even better, active (4th-12th grade) 4-Hers from these counties get in FREE!  This event is open to the public and we are expecting a large number of attendees.

You can also check out their website and link to their YouTube channel by visiting www.petersonfarmbros.com
