Weds 10/12: 'The Farm' (PBS)
There is no better way to honor National Farmer Day than by checking out episodes of Ian Knauer’s studies of the American farmer. The Farm is a charming mix of agricultural documentary and cooking program, following farm-fresh ingredients from their humble beginnings all the way to the dinner table. As host, Knauer is not afraid of getting his hands dirty, sharing the workload whether it is milking a cow or picking hops to be brewed into homemade ale. But beyond spotlighting the farm-to-table trend, the series also addresses the importance of sustainable food production and eco-conscious practices.
