America's Heartland

Watch on AETN

America’s Heartland is a weekly public television series that celebrates and profiles the people, places, and processes of our nation's agriculture. A magazine-style half-hour show, it focuses on our national love for the land, our fascination with food and the bedrock American values of family, hard work and the spirit of independence.

America's Heartland, airing Sunday's at 12:30 p.m on AETN stations across the state, celebrates the miracle of U.S. agriculture and the farm and ranch families who help make it possible.

Arkansas Farm Bureau is an underwriter of the program in Arkansas. Nationally, American Farm Bureau and Monsanto are the program’s chief sponsors.

Our nation’s agriculture is a truly miraculous enterprise, a place where only 2% of the population feeds, clothes, and fuels the other 98%, along with millions more worldwide. Farmers and ranchers of all stripes contribute mightily to our quality of life, and as a result, American consumers spend less to feed themselves than any other country in the world. Our nation’s very roots are in agrarian culture, and over time we’ve lost the connection between our food and those who produce it.
