Ever notice how every time you see a farmer interviewed on the news he comes off looking like a hillbilly?

Then the other day I stumbled across a video linked by a friend on Facebook. It's the story of Nathan and Meagan, a young farm couple who also happen to be my neighbours. I was pleased to see these two discussing the challenges and joys of country life and providing a fresh example of what it means to be a farmer.
