About America's Heartland

  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 100 episodes and 500 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. America’s Heartland captures both the challenges and triumphs of farm and ranch families across the U.S., and showcases their commitment to quality food and animal safety, and environmental stewardship. The beliefs and ideas of America’s Heartland are shared by RFD-TV and the people who have been watching the program faithfully for over a decade.

  America’s Heartland is a magazine-style, half-hour series produced by KVIE, Sacramento and distributed by American Public Television. Sponsors are the Monsanto Company and the American Farm Bureau Federation. Additional production and promotion assistance is provided by the American Soybean Association, The National FFA Organization, National Corn Growers Association, National Cotton Council, National Association of Wheat Growers, United Soybean Board and U.S. Grains Council.

  All across the U.S., we've discovered unforgettable people and places in the world of agriculture through the program. America's Heartland brings positive, heartfelt stories about American agriculture to viewers in both urban and rural areas. Our agenda has led us on journeys of all kinds, like that of U.S.-produced corn and wheat as it was made into cattle feed and other products, including a new kind of “plastic” cup. We also joined American farmers as they shared their knowledge about food safety, sustainability, and greater productivity with their fellow farmers in the third world.
