'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

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.”
