Farmer P earns more from Youtube than through farming

Biskit the dog is one of the stars of the channel, and even has her own merchandise

A cattle farmer says that he makes more money from YouTube than from his dairy herd.

Since 2018, Ian Pullen from Wotton-under-Edge, Gloucestershire, has been adding content to the site.

His channel, Farmer P, has 37,500 subscribers, and some of his videos get hundreds of thousands of views.

Mr. Pullen shows both what goes wrong and what goes right on the farm, and he tells his audience to “stay honest.”

When Mr. Pullen started the channel, he didn’t think that anyone would pay him for his work.

“About two and a half years ago, Google sent me a message that said, ‘We just sent you £47.'”

“I thought, ‘What? Where did that come from?’

“The next was £80, and then it was £300. I now make more than 40 cattle from YouTube… who knew?”

He used the money he made online to buy a new barn and invest in high-end camera gear, such as a drone for taking pictures from above.

He has also learned what kind of content gets people most excited.

People like shiny tractors, and his dog Biskit is so popular that she has her own merchandise.

Mr. Pullen bought a drone licence so he can make his videos more interesting.
Mr. Pullen says that he puts all of the money he earns online back into his farm.

Katie Jarvis from the National Farmers’ Union in Gloucestershire thinks that more farmers who blog would be good for the industry.

She said, “This is a very uncertain time for farming, and it will be for a while.”

“It would be great if they could make some money while teaching people about what we do and how important it is to grow food and take care of the environment.
