185: Peanuts, YouTube, and Randy the Farmer

Maybe you’ve seen his brother’s videos on Facebook or TikTok, or maybe you follow the duo on their YouTube channel. The likelihood is that you’ve probably definitely seen them before! Well on this episode of Farm Traveler, I’m chatting with Jim McArthur, just one of the brains behind FieldRows. Jim and his twin brother Randy grow peanuts on their family farm in North Florida, actually just about an hour away from me here in Panam City. In our chat, Jim and I talk about the family peanut farm, growing up in North Florida, and the impact Hurricane Michael had just a few short years ago. We’ll also talk peanuts, growing a YouTube channel, and just how Jim deals with Randy on the farm.
