Smyth County, VA -

A Virginia family of cattle farmers will be featured on National Geographic next month in a new show called FAMILY BEEF. 

The Buchanans are a multigenerational family of cattle farmers in the rural town of Rich Valley, Virginia (Smyth County). The show will follow three generations of the family: Raymond "Poppy" Buchanan, 80, "Big Tom" Buchanan, 58, and Bucky "Bo" Buchanan, 30.

"Keeping a 2,000 acre farm on its feet in 21st century America is no easy task, especially with corporate owned farms 'ruling the roost'. But the Buchanans are doing everything they can to preserve their family legacy and hang on to their way of life" says the official news release. 

The show airs Wednesday, August 7th at 9 and 9:30 p.m.
