Middlesex-based 'Farm Kings' to begin third season

| Saturday, Dec. 21, 2013, 7:08 p.m.

Bigger, newer and better.

That's how Freedom Farms' Joseph King described season three of the reality TV show “Farm Kings,” which chronicles the lives of the King family on their farm.

“We're never going to run out of story lines, that's for sure,” he said.

The eight-episode season three premiered Thursday on the Great American Country television network. The hour-long episodes can be seen at 9 p.m. Thursdays.

The show depicts the struggles and successes of King, his eight brothers, sister and mother as they run the 200-acre Freedom Farms in Middlesex. They grow produce, raise chickens, cows and pigs and run a farmer's market, sandwich shop and donut shop.

They began a publication, “Freedom Farms Magazine,” in June to provide more insight into farming and sustainable living.

Family matriarch Lisa King said many fans have made cross-country trips to their market to see them in action.

“Our family really genuinely loves what we do and we couldn't be having any more fun,” Joseph King said. “This has been an awesome ride.”
