- Almost anywhere they go, three Saline County teens are recognized as the stars in the hit YouTube “I’m Farming and I Grow It” video.
From the Kansas City Star:
Before their video went viral in late June, Greg, Nathan, Kendal and Laura Peterson were just Kansas farm kids.
Now, they are celebrities.
Almost anywhere they go — from New York City, where they appeared on Fox News; to Albuquerque, N.M., at the Ag Media Summit; to Wellington, where the brothers appeared in a parade for the Kansas Wheat Festival — the Saline County teens are recognized as the stars in the hit YouTube “I’m Farming and I Grow It” video.
Even their mom, Marla Peterson, notices more star power.
“It has been kind of an unbelievable summer,” Marla Peterson said. “You go places and people know who you are and you don’t know who they are.
The Peterson siblings thought they would do well if they could get 100,000 views. As of Sunday, the video had received more than 6.6 million views and has been shown on “Good Morning America,” CNN, Yahoo and the “Today” show. Stories about it have been published in newspapers across the nation.
