Survivor Finalist Big Tom is back and this time it’s with the whole family. This multi-generational farm family is opening its doors to America and telling everyone to ‘come on in!’ Family Beef follows the life and adventures of the Buchanan family cattle farm. Running a traditional cattle farm is a tough business, but Big Tom and the gang seem to have it all figured out… err, sort of.
Virginia has over 46,000 farms and while the average age of a Virginian farmer is 58 years old, the Buchanan farm boasts three generations of command. The only problem with three strong-willed men all vying to run a farm is that making decisions is no easy task (see below).
One things for sure, the Buchanans charm their way into the hearts of their viewers. The show gives great insight into the lives of how a typical farmer makes a living and the Buchanans provide the comic relief. What may seem outrageous to an outsider on Family Beef is just another day-in-the-life on the farm. Their easily relatable banter and playful outlook on life make this series a fun and light-heard homage to family and farmers.
