Movie Reviews

Great Video about the Farm
Book Lover | Atkinson, NH | 02/17/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"We have had this video for several years. My son has watched it over and over again from the time he was 4. It is so informative and fun that adults will enjoy it also.

We learned about all the different machines on the farm involved in planting and harvesting. There is a segment on feeding and milking the cows, and on making potato chips, peanut butter and bread. We love it."
Great educational and entertaining video for toddlers+

"This was my sons favorite video. I didn't allow him to watch anything until after he was two, and I only wanted it to be educational. This video hit the mark. It's an overview of farming - "where does our food come from?". It's perfect on run-time. In total I think it's under 45 minutes. Rusty is the host, and he gives a simple, easily understood overview of tractors and farming. There's lots of shots of tractors, cows, all sorts of farm equipment, as well as factory equipment used to make peanut butter, bread, and so on. After nearly 2 years, my son still asks to watch this video on occaison. It's especially great for parents in that there are no whiny, annoying voices or singing, and it has great educational value, as well as pushing healthy food! I couldn't ask for anything more."
Farm Country Ahead is a bargain because it is five stories i

"This is an outstandingly well produced video aimed at kids, but interesting to parents too.

Starting with a girl making a lunch time sandwich with her Mom, (The Levine family at home) she asks herself: I wonder where our food comes from.

And the video host, Rusty DeWees shows us how every food in his lunch bucket is made on the farm. First, plowing the fields, then sowing the corn, then cultivating, then harvesting, then preparing to feed the cows, then feeding the cows, then milking the cows, then cleaning up the cow poop, and puting it back on the fields. No other video presentation I've seen does this all so well, and with such great video production quality.

But that's just the milk! What about the rest of the PB&J sandwich? The video shows how wheat is harvested (great aerial and in-cab shots of John Deere combine harvesters!) and then milled into flour, and then backed into bread.

And then the peanut butter. From harvesting the peanuts, to roasting them and grinding them into peanut butter, it's all covered.
And then the apple jelly is made starting with apple harvesting by hand in New England.

If this were just about tractors and farm equipment in action, it would be a lot of fun. But this DVD is a collection of documentaries for children with top shelf content and music.

I had to buy a replacement because the first one got broken due to mishandling, but it's worth replacing so that we have this video in our library.

I'd give it six stars for education, if I could."
