Jon and I were honored to be asked to participate in the CNBC segment “Escaping the Cube”: a series of 2-minute looks into the lives of former corporate professionals who left ‘the cube’ to work on something for which they had a passion. It is slated to air during CNBC’s ‘Power Lunch’ – 1-3pm EST – this Friday, June 19 (it could get bumped, we’re told, up to the second it will air). Catch it if you can! We will definitely have the video on our site when we get our hands on it.
Following are some of my photos of our day with the film crew! The pigs really shine when ‘action’ is called!
We started in the turkey pen with the 2-week old poults…
As you can see, the turkeys were ‘all over it’.
I even have some footage and photo bombs from the nursery!
Then we hit up the veggie fields and the barns over by the Martin tract. The pigs were really interested in what were were doing.
And the producer was not sure how to get the best shot of 300 lbs of muscle and fat.
But true to their nature, they settled down and let themselves be photographed and filmed exhibiting their natural behavior. This one is demanding a SAG card stat!
We have no idea what went on in the editing process, but we hope you enjoy it.
Here’s one more photo. This sow just couldn’t get enough of the Jerry the camera man!
