Season 6 Premiere: Tractor pull, invasive blue catfish, and breeding bees.

This November, Emmy award-winning host Joanne Clendining is back for a sixth season of Maryland Farm and Harvest, once again taking viewers on a journey across the state for an inside look at where our food comes from. From the crowd-pleasing demonstration of mechanical power at a tractor pull to an up-close look at the delicate intricacies of breeding honeybees, the hit program continues to celebrate the diversity within Maryland's number one industry.

New this season, viewers will get a look at the state's seafood industry, including an invasive species that's making a splash as a new menu item at some of the region's hottest restaurants. All-new episodes premiere Tuesday, November 13th, 2018 at 7pm.

About the Show

Ever been to a Maryland farm to see how our food is grown? Have you seen a cow being milked, or corn being harvested at night? How about watermelons being hand-picked or broccoli seedlings being gently planted into the soil in early spring?

In fact, many Marylanders have never visited farms, though they've driven by them many times without knowing it.

To help Marylanders learn more about agriculture - the state's number one industry - Maryland Public Television (MPT) in partnership with the Maryland Department of Agriculture (MDA) has created Maryland Farm & Harvest, a multimedia series that puts a human face on farming.

Hosted by Joanne Clendining, Maryland Farm & Harvest takes viewers around the state to see and experience what it's like to run a 21st century farm – from technological advances and conservation challenges to age-old complications such as weather hardships. MF&H also captures the number one reason why planters and growers dedicate themselves to it all: their simple love of farming.
