In many ways, Freedom Farms isn't your typical American farm. In 2009, brothers Joe, Tim, and Pete King founded Freedom Farms and reunited their entire family?nine brothers, a sister, and mother "Mama Bear" Lisa?on the property to run the land. If that sounds familiar, that's because Freedom Farms has its own reality show, "Farm Kings" on GAC, based on the day-to-day lives of the family.
As unconventional as Freedom Farms might seem on paper, its origins are fairly traditional. The King kids grew up on a family farm and today work toward connecting their community with local food. For passers-by, Freedom Farms has become a neighborhood stop for just that. Since opening, the property has grown to feature markets and even a sandwich and a donut shop. The family even publishes a monthly magazine so fans can check out the family's recipes, gardening tips, and keep up with all the show's happenings.
