We’re most often out in a field with our noses in the dirt. But you’ll also find us in lab coats and restaurants and packinghouses, Congressional and State offices, college and industry research facilities – anywhere there’s a story to be told about food and farming.

Where The Food Comes From taps into the passion and commitment of the people who feed us. There are easier ways to make a living, as anyone who’s ever seen the show knows. But from the farms to the research laboratories to the offices where people make the rules that regulate it all, the people involved in agriculture care deeply about what they’re doing. They make up just 1.5% of the population – but they proudly bear the weight of keeping the rest of us fed.

That’s the power of Where The Food Comes From – peeling back the labels and letting the world meet some of the people who put food on their plates.

Catch Where The Food Comes From every Friday at 10:00 p.m. and Saturday at 1:30 a.m. EST on the RFD-TV Network and on demand at RFD-TV Now and Cowboy Channel+!


Season 4, Episode 13

Fruit Or Vegetable?!

Welcome to everybody's favorite gameshow, Fruit...Or...Veggie! Okay, it's not a real gameshow, but as you'll see, it could be. We all know what we think is a fruit and what's a vegetable. Pretty clear, right? Wrong. Sure you probably know about a tomato — everybody knows that even though it seems like a veggie — it's actually a fruit. But did you realize there are dozens to hundreds of others in the same boat?

We went to the University of Georgia Durham Horticulture Research Farm just off campus near Athens to meet with Dr. Tim Coolong, who knows what's what when it comes to fruit and veggies.

And then to prove a point, we headed on-campus to play our show! Turns out almost nobody knows what's actually a fruit and what's a veggie! It's a fun way to end Season 4... and we've got a lot more surprises in store for Season 5, including a return to UGA!

You’ve seen the show go to farms and fields, labs and packinghouses looking mostly at the world of fresh fruits and veggies. That’s still the main theme for Season 3. But we’ve got some new topics too, like wild-caught seafood, beef and — in the Season Premiere — something we never expected in an episode we call “Where The (Water) Buffalo Roam.” This season we’ll also take a look at how agriculture impacts the Port of Savannah; veggies like broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage; the Watermelon Capital of the World; more from our onion friends in Vidalia; how pecans have led to the rebirth of an American icon — Stuckey’s; and you’ll see the indispensable roles bees play in helping feed the world (yes, you’ll get to peek inside the beehive!). One spoiler: Winnie The Pooh had the whole honey thing wrong. Bears actually hate the stuff. You’ll see!
