This week I had the pleasure of taking to Phil Stewart or as you may know him better on YouTube as Farmer Phil. Phil runs a big operation with his Dad along with the rest of his family and between his main tractors and his growing collection of vintage tractors he has 29 in total! They also farm 500 acres which is split between a dairy to beef operation and tillage. Phil also makes YouTube videos and now has over 36,000 subscribers!
We had a great chat about the awful year that 2016 was for tillage farmers and how the Stewart family had to get out of suckler cows to be able to keep the ship afloat, calf rearing, how automatic feeders work and how to keep them alive and turn a profit on them. We also talk about Phil’s YouTube channel, how he first started putting up farm simulator videos to be the next farming version Pewdiepie and how he’s handling his newfound fame.
