How Farmer Matt Moreland Landed on Netflix's Queer Eye

Today, I’m bringing you an encore episode of the show by reairing my interview with Matt Moreland, a farmer who appeared on Season 4 of Queer Eye.

Not only was this one of my first episodes (episode #6), it’s also one of my favorites. So, if you’re a new listener of the show, I wanted to bring this one back so you could have a chance to catch one of my most popular episodes.

As you’ll hear in this conversation, Matt Moreland did NOT want to appear on Netflix’s hit reality show, Queer Eye. In fact, when Netflix came knocking on his door, he said “no.” Repeatedly. 

It wasn’t until a production crew came to visit Matt’s dairy farm and pumpkin patch, that he realized the opportunity in appearing on the show. We’ll talk about that moment and what made him finally decide to agree to be on the show. Matt also explains how he built Red Barn Ranch and became the successful pumpkin patch owner he is today.  Plus, he gives us a behind-the-scenes look at shooting his episode, including one of his favorite moments with Jonathan Van Ness that didn’t appear on camera.

Whether you’re a fan of Queer Eye or not, I think you’ll love hearing Matt’s story and how he’s handled failure, challenges and big decisions.

If you haven’t already listened to this one, hit play now. You don’t want to miss it!
