Behind the scenes: Our “Great Day” Video Shoot

A couple of weeks ago, Lou from GREAT DAY on KCWI visited our farm to talk turkey.

It was cold outside, but warm and toasty in our barns.

I *hate* that we had to give in and give Isaac his pacifier, but that’s real life.  We’re a family first, farmers second, and I had to take care of my boys.

Adam was out of the picture by this point because he was so crabby.  This experience gives me a greater appreciation for child actors.

GREAT DAY and turkey farmers

Both boys ended up with fevers that evening.  I should have seen it coming.

If you want to see us at our best trying to talk about turkeys while juggling two crabby, sick boys, tune in to Great Day on KCWI Thanksgiving morning!

Would you like to comment?

  1. We have 25 wild turkeys in our field this morning.. They are eating the left over corn the combine didn't get.. We have a small buck also this morning along with 4 doe..
    IT's O.K. with the pacifier in your boys mouth...better than a thumb.. thumb sucking is so very hard to break..
    You all looked great in the interview with all your turkeys.. that's a lot of turkeys..
    Have a tiggeriffic day..ta ta for now from Iowa:)

  2. You are an AWESOME mother.

    I think it's great you are giving folks a glimpse into your barns - so neat on Thanksgiving morning.

    I also didn't comment the other day, but I loved your post on what you're reading & your recommendations. Sounds great.

    1. Thank you so much for the sweet words, Cheyenne. Made my day. :)

  3. That is awesome! Well, minus the crabby boys part, but I think everyone knows - that's life! Do you know what time exactly it'll be shown? I might just have to DVR it due to our Thanksgiving plans.

    1. I'm not sure - I think they're going to show it a few times throughout the morning!
