Farmer Jason is the brainchild of rock music legend Jason Ringenberg of Jason and the Scorchers. An Americana Music Association Lifetime Achievement Award winner, Ringenberg is one of the pioneers of the modern Americana and alt-country genres. In 2002 he created Farmer Jason to educate and entertain children about farm life and the wonders of nature. The character is based on his own farming background and love of the great outdoors. As Farmer Jason he has released 4 records and a DVD. He has starred in the “It’s a Farmer Jason” video interstitial program which airs on several PBS stations around the United States, earning 4 Emmy nominations and one Emmy win.
