In seven full seasons, America's Heartland reporters and crews have brought in stories from all across our great nation. We’ve completed 150 half-hour episodes that take you to all 50 states, as well as faraway places like Taiwan, China, Egypt and Morocco. We’ve toured the White House Garden with Michelle Obama, and hit the dusty trail on a three-day Utah cattle drive. Throughout our journeys, we’ve heard American farmers and ranchers share their passion for hard work and excellent products, as well as their commitment to food safety, sustainability, environmental stewardship and animal welfare.
Back in 2005, we opened our first episode with the line "America's Heartland is more than a place; it's a state of mind." More than 700 stories later, it's still true. Providing food, fuel and fiber for America and the world is an act of passion on the part of our farmers and ranchers big or small, mainstream or specialized. In season 7, you'll learn even more about how our agriculture producers provide us their rich bounty. Celebrity chef Dave Lieberman (Farm to Fork) visits family farms to harvest unique crops and prepare delicious recipes right in the kitchen. We’ve included special features about the history of familiar food products (Harvesting Knowledge), nutrition surprises (Fast Facts About Food), information about items found right in the grocery store (Off the Shelf), and new opportunities for viewers to go “to the source” with their agriculture questions (Ask a Farmer). Season 7 features specially-themed episodes highlighting the music, art and stunning landscapes found only in the Heartland. Of course, all of our episodes are in High Definition.
