Below are the different presentations we can give at an event! These presentations can be changed in order to fit what you are looking for, and please feel free to suggest something different!
I’m Farming and I Grow It (An AgVocating Success Story)
Join Greg (or the Peterson Farm Brothers) for a story that’s entertaining, inspirational, educational, and motivational for people of all ages and all backgrounds. The story includes how we got started making videos, where all they’ve taken us, the power of communicating through social media, and the lessons we’ve learned in advocating for agriculture online. We will be performing several of our parody music videos throughout the presentation and will be more than happy to stick around afterward for pictures, autographs, and conversations with attendees.
Length: 45 minutes – 1 Hour plus possible Q&A time
Peterson Farm Brothers Behind the Scenes Workshop
Join Greg (or the Peterson Farm Brothers) as he explains what all goes into the social media production of the Peterson Farm Brothers. From behind the scenes of making videos to explaining how we decide what, when, where, and how to post content, Greg will try to address all of your questions about how we are able to do what we do. He will also share tips of how to have conversations and respond to negative comments.
Length: 45 minutes
*Most often booked in conjunction with previous presentation “An Agvocating Success Story”
Celebrating the Diversity of Agriculture
This presentation is an expanded version of the TEDx Talk Greg gave in 2016. It will cover the knowledge and perspectives he has gained from traveling around the world getting to tour farms of all different types. Greg will talk to the audience about why it is important that those of us in agriculture support one another and embrace different forms of farming, such as conventional and organic, but also demand truth and credibility in the marketing, education, and understanding of different technology used in agriculture.
Length: 45 minutes (Will include 2-3 music videos to entertain)
Millennial Perspectives in Agriculture
Greg will share his experience of being a young farmer in America and the things he believes his generation brings to the table and cares about. He’ll relate diversity, public perspectives, consumer misconceptions, customer sensitivities, and the value of your company or industry choosing to be real and authentic. Greg will share his unique perspective about the power of social media and the influence that has on what your customers think, do and say.
Length: 45 minutes (Can also include 2-3 music videos to entertain)

How much does it cost to book all of you? How do you manage to speak, travel and farm?
Since we have a farm to operate, social media platforms to create for and maintain, and families to spend time with, it can be hard for us to leave home, especially in busier months! The fees we charge to speak are based on time commitment, distance traveled, and the overall convenience of the event. Please email Greg (click the contact tab above) for a customized quote for your event. If you do have a limited budget, it is much cheaper to book Greg by himself and avoid paying the travel costs of all 3 brothers. We also book events with 2 brothers so one of us can stay home and help our dad with the farm.
Will your program fit my audience?
The presentations can be catered to any group or event to fit the situation better. We give the presentations listed to groups ranging from older farmers, to business professionals, to high school groups, to elementary students and younger children. We try to make our presentation fit to the specific audience! We are also up to suggestions from you and what you think the audience needs to hear from us.
Our event is outdoors, do you require a screen and projector?
While we do prefer having a screen to play the videos on, if an event is held outdoors, it is not always feasible to have a projector and screen. For these types of events (such as county fairs), we mainly perform our songs and speak casually in between them in a similar way to our normal presentation.
What are your A/V needs?
3 Handheld and/or Wireless Microphones, Audio Speakers, Projector, Projector Screen. We will bring a laptop to plug into the projector/audio system. We will bring adaptors (VGA/HDMI, Headphone to 1/4 inch audio) to fit our computer to the projector and audio.
Where can I find promotional material for events?

“Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc. has had the opportunity to partner with the Peterson Farm Brothers on multiple occasions. Working with them was a great experience. Not only were they flexible to collaborate with, they were true professionals and of course, a big hit with our customers!” – Cortney Malter, Boehringer Ingelheim
“Greg’s passion for the agriculture industry is evident when he is delivering his presentation on agvocacy. Converting every day farming chores to popular radio tunes is a great way to connect with those individuals who are not familiar with the agriculture industry. And at the same time, his entertaining delivery shines a unique light on the dedication it takes to produce food for the world.” – Sue Exner, Farm Credit Canada
“The Peterson Bros provided an invigorating look into the future of agriculture in America. Their enthusiastic and unique way of presenting life on the farm was both entertaining and educational to the audience at our National Dealer Meeting.” – Dan Bratt, Great Plains Manufacturing
“The Peterson Farm Brothers performance at AGRITECHNICA was a big motivation for the young farmers here in Germany. Now they know they have to tell their stories before the others do it.” Rainer Winter, DLG Germany
“Greg was great to work with on setting things up for Cayden’s Farm Safety Day. The Peterson Farm Bros did a great job speaking to and entertaining the grade school kids. Their parodies are easy to love and definitely had the whole auditorium singing right along with them! Afterwards, they were very sweet and stuck around to speak to the kids and sign autographs. Their presentation was a great way to end the day. Great job, boys!” Jamie Dunstan, Cayden’s Farm Safety Day
“Greg Peterson captivated both our young 4-H members, leaders, and parents at our recent 4-H Leadership Day. He motivated and encouraged them to get involved, become leaders in their community and to make a difference. The agriculture community is blessed to have Greg and his family promoting and educating those who do not know where their food comes from. It is important they know on many levels in order for us to continue feeding the world.” Janell Percy, Desert Sandblasters 4-H Leader, Indio, CA
