Farm Tour MTV Cribs-style

Take a farm tour of Klingenberg Farms, home to the trombone playing and parody singing Kansas farmer Derek Klingenberg.

In the video Klingenberg shows off his family’s farm near Peabody, Kan., where he has filmed many YouTube hits including “What Does the Farmer Say?”, aerial cow art and his trombone serenades to cattle.

Like MTV’s Cribs, the farmer takes us to where the magic happens…in his shop. Thanks to a large green screen Klingenberg can film nearly any cool effect he wants including a flight around the Kansas countryside on-board a piece of old drill stem pipe.

“I’m a busy guy with farming, filming and father,” Klingenberg says. He’ll typically go out to the shop around 4:30 AM to film in front of the green screen and many of the ideas are things he dreamed of as a kid.

Klingenberg’s “latest toy” is a drone he uses to film #CowArt and because of his brass instrument skills “there has been an increase of 5th graders playing trombone in local schools.”

The tour wouldn’t be complete without showing off some vehicles. Klingenberg takes the film crew to his John Deere tractor featuring auto steer and a jump-seat. He also displays his father’s Ford Model A that was a local school teacher’s vehicle before being restored.

Some of the farmer’s creations include a cattle working facility he designed with trigonometry and a deer stand he dubs Jumbotron.
