My mom lives on 30 acres in the middle of nowhere and raises miniature horses. The boys absolutely love visiting her and helping with measuring out food and filling up water troughs. They love to explore the barn and climb on the tractor. If’ it’s farm related, they’re immediately interested. Every cow, barn, and tractor we see gets an immediate, excited reaction. There’s just something about life on the farm that kids love.
When I heard that Farmer Jason was coming to Indianapolis, I knew this was a show my boys had to see. Farmer Jason is better known as Jason Ringenber (of Jason and the Scorchers), and is a well-known alt-country musician. In 2002, he created the Farmer Jason character to teach kids about nature and farm life, based on his own farming background. Farmer Jason has traveled all over the world sharing his music and love of farm life with kids, and has even won an Emmy award for his work on public television. His music is designed to get kids ages 2 through 8 up and moving, but kids of all ages will enjoy Farmer Jason’s talent and the fun he brings to learning about agriculture. You can listen to some of Farmer Jason’s music and see him in action here.
