I am a 5th generation family farmer from West-Central Minnesota. The recent interest in food, combined with a large amount of 'misinformation' has driven me to start this channel. I hope to be someone people can relate to and trust when they question how their food is grown and raised. I also hope to become a 'smarter' farmer through my experiences with this channel. I strongly believe we must have an open mind and a willingness to learn about others, or we cannot move forward as one. My goal is to build the connection between farmers and consumers by facilitating a collaborative conversation amongst everyone. I do this by sharing my day-to-day farming experiences, my opinions on certain topics, and occasionally visiting other farms and businesses to help better understand other farming and business practices. There is no limit to where this channel may go, so please join me!!

    “Only 20% chance to rain. They were 80% wrong” Sounds like west Texas.... HAHA

  2. thedonleroy

    That frozen ground sure makes for a rough ride with the trucks. We finished up with corn tonight. I'm glad to have Harvest 2019 in the rear view mirror. I hope we don't have one like this for a while. Thanks for the video.

  3. jclark

    Why not just fold ur auger down?

  4. Troy Justin

    I mean she's using terminology like thingamabob and doohickey already, she's a natural. What more do you need? Hire her.

  5. DAVID KHAINE

    Did you ask MIKE the proper way to pronounce VERSATILE? Them there automatic dryers are all the same, if you stand there and watch they will run fine but as so as you walk away they screw up every time...///

  6. James Thomas

    Shameless plugs much?!?!?! Hahaha. You even have Becky trained to make shameless plugs. What a pair you two make. 🤦‍♂️🤪

  7. James Hubbard

    You should have her in more videos she’s much easier on the eyes than you lol.

  8. salty dog

  12. AUSTIN COIL

    How to drive a semi: 1. Turn it on 2. Push gas and grind it till you find it

  13. Теодор Тодоров

    Nice Video Zach

  14. Kt Freese

    You're the best

  15. Blair Leonard

    Couple questions for ya Zack, Why do you always leave your auger folded out? We only extend it when unloading into semi, bagger. Second question what are you using to measure the weight in the grain cart ? Hope you guys finish combing ! we got caught with 500 acres of wheat under the snow.

  16. James Fitzgerald

    You and Mrs. Mil. farmer were ment for each other.

  17. Bill 55811

    Zach, you really need to get that beautiful wife of yours in the tractor more running it so that way when things get tight and you need help she can jump in there and help you guys, after all, that is part of being a farm wife. And she is sooooo much better looking than you!!! Sorry buddy but the truth is the truth. Although I did get a good laugh at you explaining to her how to do the do-hickey and all. LOL, that was rich!!! All kidding aside I think it is great to see you young ones and your wives out working with you it reminds me of the old days and honestly it shows to the younger generations that working in the fields is something to be proud of and sharing it as a family only brings a family closer together I feel!!!! I know she works hard with the little ones and all the other things you have going on but it is still great to see her out and working with you and she did a great job last year I thought. You all are always in my prayers and thank you for your awesome video's I really enjoy them!!!

  18. FUNNYBOY12375

    Zach not getting lucky

  19. Hunter Payton

    Lmao you two with your terminology, or lack thereof..🤣🤣🤣👍 love it😁

  20. chrisretusn

    I understood completely.

  21. Samuel Walch

    Ya that homeless guy works for MNsel funny, I think you need to go to grain cart driver training school as a instructor.

  22. Agri Farm Models

    Jeeez the twin track tracked tractors look as uncomfortable as f**k

  23. Paul Gimenez

    Ah for Pete’s sake Bec be careful handling that dohiky.

  24. Greg Loechel

  25. Edward Acuff

    Love the guest appearance!

  26. Keith Krone

    Lunacy is not diplomacy. Trump has no idea what he is doing. The idea of nationalism and isolationism is not today’s world. Not in urban America, not in rural America.

    She’s a smart girl, had legitimate questions AND she knew what a hydrostatic drive was! I’m impressed! I don’t think any woman I know knows what a hydrostatic drive is. Also you give horrible explanations of things and she still knew what you were talking about. Hahaha she’s a good one

    Farming has surly changed since I was a youngster on a farm back in Pennsylvania in the early 1940s . We used a team of horses to farm. I am happy for you that you have all the modern equipment to farm with. You can sure get more done in a day than we could. We would plow a single furrow behind the team, and be fortunate to get a few acres done in a day. When I was six years old it was my chore to milk the cow by hand as well as slopping the hogs Etc. prior to going to school each day, then repeating the same when i got back home. Each of us in the family had our daily chores to attend to. During the summer we raised most all of our food in a large garden. Mom would can so we would have it through the winter. I would churn the butter each Saturday morning, and what wasn't required for our use, Mom would trade along with the excess eggs, to the grocer in town for flour, sugar, and yeast Etc. or sell for cash, to buy through through Sears catalogue our school cloths and a Christmas gift each year. Of course we had things a lot better than those living in town since WW2 was going on. Every thing was rationed, and hard to come by. For some reason that I am not sure of ,we didn't realize how difficult things were. I suppose it was because it was the normal way of things at the time, as we all were is the same condition. Now I am in my eighties and wonder about the youth of today. I see the family farms are disappearing. What impact will this have for the future of the country? Big business and Government seem to be taking over, and in my opinion ruin more than they produce. I suppose since youth has never experienced what those who have gone before them have. They can't really understand what it cost those before them, so that they can have the rich benefits they have today. I suppose my generation was of the same as those of today concerning that matter. Please forgive an old man for rambling on such. I got carried away with thoughts of my past. I pray that God will provide all of your needs and most of your wants.

  37. brjzn

    First, thank you for sharing. Overall do you think 2019 will be profitable re: yield and price? I hope you hit the lottery so can retire early as you appear to have already worked two lifetimes.

  38. Bam MasterJ813

    Those fuel wagons are nice.. we sell them at my work (Case dealer, the welkers love that lol!) Glad to see successful farmers on MNsel! Support both of y’all! Great content and awesome people!

  39. Midwest Bandit

    Farmer

  40. Dale

    Like 2 peas in a pod. Enjoyed that. Now for the Mrs. to show her Mr. how to do laundry. OH YES! NOW THAT WOULD BE A TREAT! 😝 It just may crash the internet. Perfect.🤣👌

  41. s k

    I've rolled a few aircraft, but never an implement. Was this a case of too slimy or greasy while on sloping terrain, or texting while implementing? Regardless, heck of a team effort on the clean-up.

  42. MechanicMan

    I'm telling you, the more there is of Becky in these videos the better they are. The interaction between you two is priceless, it's the same thing that makes the podcasts awesome.

  43. Nick Christopher

    Rule #1 to running grain cart if the combine backs into you you were in the wrong spot

  44. D2farms

    Looks like me last week ice field combining.

  45. Tirtha Sidhu

    Very good job

  46. Zachary Parrish

    Why don’t you fold your auger in on the cart when not in use?

  47. Pete Lyczek

    You let her drive that cart, she will be showing you how to fix it next! Just watch!

  48. Liam Jerkins

    7:30 CAB CORN. 7:57 love the add!!!

  49. eriverab

    Hi i just want to know what is the app that you use to manage yours fields? Great video

  50. 1 Proud American

    *Farmers are a tough breed.*

  51. Allen Hrubes

    Hey Zach! Teaching your wife how to run a piece of equipment can have positive results (you and Becky) or disastrous results (me and my wife). You were cool, calm and collected with your better half and, when I was farming 20 years ago, I yelled a bit too much when my wife was driving our truck up the ramp into the elevator and the motor started to lug down and stalled. Lesson over, my wife was crying and I felt like a heel. All of this and we were only married for three months when this went down. 26 years later, we're still married but I don't try to teach my wife anything...it's keeps us both sane. The sweatshirt Becky was wearing caused me to think you were Massey Ferguson fans. MF...Millennial Farmer...not quite a fan of Massey. HA! Hey Zach! Thanks for sharing your day with all of us...take care.

  52. iembalm 3

    Please show more of Mrs. Millennial Farmer!!

  53. Otto Seeger

    On the outside of fields why can't you fold your grain tank auger?

  54. Jace Marks

    Your neighbor seems nice to help you out and I hope your grandpa feels better Zach and you did a good thing to help your neighbor out for their soybean harvest

  55. BW adventures

    Awesome edit job when u snap ur fingers and boom bean head is on... Perfect!!

  56. Keith Pomeraning

    You married up, dude...

  57. Kevin Rasmussen

    Is there going to be a test on operating that grain cart? =/

  58. Gord Mcdonald

    That's a doohickey .... are you excited? ..... don't tear the rubber ..... don't worry about the rubber ..... see that auger sticky out...... oh you can't tear that rubber ..... Farmers wearing leotards ... I'm so hot (yes we know Becky) I just don't know anymore. I thought this was a family channel. Now I see we have to rate it. Great video guys as always. I apologize now for my selective hearing

  59. Ryan King

    Dohickeys, thingamabobs; when did this become a tech talk channel?

  60. Erik Molstad

    What size are the tracks on your R and what is the spacing

  61. john holschlag

    Great video. Love to see day to day operations. Like your equipment description. Also like your bathrooms. Gives me a real feel for farming

  62. Logan Minnick

    You Bought it

  63. Tracy Gossett

    I'm not a farmer, but I love watching this channel. The only question I have is what is the corn used for, is it feed for livestock, used as fuel or for making tortillas?

  64. Terry davis

    As a retired cash crop farmer from Ontario Canada I can relate to the long grind the fall harvest can be. You and your dad work very hard and both work very well together. Good luck with the rest of your harvest.

  65. Andrew Jensen

    She seems happier than you Zac

  66. Gregory Gentzkow

    Why do you go from combine to grain cart to semi? Why not skip the grain cart?

  67. Phillip Anderson

    Shocking that they allowed a camera on the production line.

  68. John Bell

    Y’all two are very funny

  69. Kenneth Heck

    When you was building the bin I said you were still going to go down because the dryer didn't run no faster I hate that I was right. LOL

  70. Loren Seitz

    What a great couple!

  71. cptbimes

    All that bouncing around inside the cab and not a single Ace Ventura reference. A shame.

  72. Jake Watt

    On the right hand side at the top of the harvester there is a large wheel that spins what is its function?

  73. Van Robinett

    Take your wife on the tractor they said. It will be fun they said.

  74. Feltro 19

    Yes the mrs needs to drive much nicer to look at than the farmer zack

  75. Ben Neave

    Farmer Ben from England here. I’m a guy who suffers with really bad anxiety and depression. I just want to say how much I love your videos. I always watch your videos when I’m going through a difficult time. They always cheer me up. Keep up the good work.

  76. Candlelight

    “ playin with his “do hickee” and “ tearin rubbers” ... that’s what she said... :)

  77. 1 Proud American

    *I agree with you 100%.* *It's a short term pinch for a long term fix.* *We need to protect our present and future farmers and ranchers. I think President Trump is trying to do just that.*

  78. Nick Popelka

    Man its bumpy

  79. Larry Stolzman

    Thanks Zach: I'm a 70 year old retired CPA that grew up on a farm. I Love the fact that growing up on a farm taught me all I needed to know to succeed in life. Schooling just improved things. FYI: I've become addicted to your videos. I enjoy each one and can't wait to see the next. This one reminded me of how much my parents were willing to do for each other, my siblings and me. Love makes every thing grow. God Bless!

  80. Mike Less - Farmhand Mike

    Thanks for having me out Zach and including me in your video.

    1. Edward Schwenk

      It was fun seeing you in the video Mike. I guess it must be more economically viable for Zach to have Becky run the grain cart for free; than hire a homeless guy to do it for slightly less than minimum wage! (lol)

  81. Kujob 6

    “Watch the auger, don’t knock it off” Put the damn thing in you dip

  82. Brian Markworth

    How is she just now learning all these things? Where you not farming when you guys were just dating?

  83. Cole

    Ahhh the ol' turn it off and on again trick @ 14:20. Works 60% of the time every time.

  84. Romeo 1010

    The Dohicky, the thingerdee, the whatsee. You teaching her well . Ahhhh 😵😵😵😂😂😎🤠🇦🇺

  85. FS Ashton

    dude mike less wouldn't have expected that

  86. Leofred

    Mrs. millennial farmers so cute and legit. Lemme know if you get tired of her 🙂

  87. BigBoyPOtatO _

    My cousins boss owned a mower like that would you like to tell me what started you bought that in because I am curious about if I have been around that mower before.

  88. Andrew Hodges

    I love your vids

  89. Trapper JDB

    You should try to do your wife’s job. Would it be a epic failure? Love her northern accent.

  90. Everythingisgoingtobealright

    Good times

  91. Murdoch 451

    Nothing worse than a frozen sink.

  92. Mike L

    She’s asking all the right questions!

  93. David M

    can you imagine being that wealthy or influential of a farmer to have this "sent" to trial? You guys have it made so much more than you know. I love watching your channel. I feel bad for the small farmer trying to compete on the family farm

  94. Landon Sines

    We unload at 6.5 mph

  95. Everythingisgoingtobealright

    All summer I watch and think, I wish I was a farmer. Then I see bare hands in a windy cold field fixing a wheel bearing and I think, fuck that.

  96. Drake Brown

    Rule number one of driving grain cart it's always your fault that is so true 🤣🤣🤣

  97. Allan Sitte

    Future grain cart driver extraordinaire right there. She shows interest in the work... may be a keeper.

  98. Matthew dowd

    What a great teacher you’re wife has! Great vid zack!!

  99. Jeff Price

    Becky cracks me up! 😂

  100. GrizzlyAaron

    I wish i could share my job with my wife sometimes, but people in hell want icewater! Thanks for the vids, really appreciate them.
