Back in the Spring,, the famous “Hairy Biker” Chefs from England traveled the iconic Route 66 from one end to the other. Our farm, Acadian Family Farm, affectionately known in their show as “Rod’s farm” was chosen to be one of their stops. Nanette and I had a lot of fun working with the two chefs. They were really down to earth guys and not afraid to get their hands dirty. The Hairy Bikers parked their motorcycles and rode our transplanter to learn how sweet potatoes are planted. They also cooked up a great sweet potato dessert in Nanette’s farm kitchen.
Their program about Route 66 will begin broadcasting in England September 12 at 8 pm.
