How Farmer Matt Moreland Landed on Netflix’s Queer Eye

Most people would jump at the chance to receive a makeover on Netflix’s hit reality show, Queer Eye. However, that wasn’t the case with farmer Matt Moreland.

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. In today’s episode, we’ll talk about that moment and what made him finally decide to agree to be on the show.

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.

Matt also explains how he built Red Barn Ranch and became the successful pumpkin patch owner he is today. Matt’s story is one of innovation, perseverance and evolution. 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.
