logo-ah2

DETROIT, MI — October 27, 2016 – Experienced farmers are prepared for the worst, but the younger generation must find a way into an agricultural world that is far different than the one in which their parents grew up. The next gen’s struggles and successes are featured in the new season of “American Harvest.” This series is available on-demand for free on www.carbontv.com and related CarbonTV OTT apps.

“American Harvest” introduced the Johnsons, a multi-generational family of farmers in Central Minnesota. In a world where family farms have somewhat faded from the landscape there are still many young people poised to enter the family business and perhaps one day, take over.

“American Harvest: Next Generation” puts viewers back into Leah Johnson’s world, where her work at Red River Marketing continues, while also helping father, Brent, and brother, Donny, with the home farm. Josh Fiedler and his wife Liz, both grew up raising cattle. Though they have full time careers, they’re preparing to re-enter their old lives with a move back to the farm. Specifically, a portion of the farm they’ve purchased from Josh’s father. Chad Olsen, owner and operator of one of Olsen Custom Farms, enters into another year of custom harvesting along the route from Texas to Canada. With a fleet of more than 80 combines, Chad’s business commands a great deal of time, organization, and problem solving.

“With the help of our sponsors, Chevrolet and Titan Tires, we are able to give American Harvest fans and the AG world an authentic look into the next generation of modern American farming and technologies that is not covered enough of in current media,” says Daniel Seliger, EVP of Content and Marketing at CarbonTV.

Sophisticated technology brings the best information and efficiency but increases the cost of an already expensive career. Techniques to control loss of land and crops comes with an investment in time and money. Getting started, even in an established family business, is daunting. Every day, the old guard trains their crew to take over while the graduating class balances continued education with hands-on experience.

DETROIT, MI — October 13, 2016 — NOPE! Chuck Testa is alive and stitching. His new original series “Mounted: Chuck Testa and Friends” debuts on CarbonTV on October 13th. The show features Chuck and his friends as they go about their uniquely fascinating lives centered around Chuck’s taxidermy business: Ojai Valley Taxidermy, in Ojai, California. This series is available on-demand for free on www.carbontv.com and related CarbonTV OTT apps.

The taxidermy legend became an internet star, when his NOPE! video went viral on YouTube, exceeding 16 Million views and becoming a meme juggernaut across the web. Chuck’s video has been featured on Funny or Die, Buzzfeed, CBS, and dozens of other outlets. TIME included Testa in their top 10 best memes of 2011. Chuck has done cameos on Cable TV shows, appeared in several commercials, and was recently featured on CarbonTV’s ‘American Elements’ documentary series.

Testa’s trusted assistant, Jeff Davis, an artist specializing in bird taxidermy, is also featured in the series along with other ‘family’ members and special friends.

“Chuck is so much more than the meme that made him popular,” said Daniel Seliger, EVP of Content and Marketing at Carbon Media Group. “He leads a truly interesting and authentic life. We hope the Mounted series will give the Internet what it craves most: More Chuck Testa.”
