The American Farm Full Episode Guide

  • As fall draws to a close, the last harvests are do or die for these family businesses. Farmers have put everything on the line to stay afloat, and set themselves up for the future, but will it be enough?

  • Harvest season hits high gear, and judgment day arrives for some of the year's biggest gambles. As bank payments loom and legacies are at stake, one bad harvest could spell disaster.

  • September arrives, and fall harvest begins: Two farms face life or death struggles with their livestock, while a third races to get their crop harvested and help a neighbor in trouble.

  • In mid-summer, winter wheat is ready to harvest, and it's the years first opportunity for a pay-day and a chance to break out their combines.

  • With the crops in the ground and hundreds of thousands of dollars on the line, farmers must protect their investment and fight back when their fields are threatened by a variety of pests.

  • As spring arrives, hard-working family farms gamble everything they have, fighting to stay in business, and stay together. The real-life struggle begins each year by going deep in debt on new land, equipment and livestock.
