Season 17, Episode 1 The Farmer's Wife
First Aired: August 23, 1999
“The Farmer's Wife,” a three-part 1998 documentary, follows a Nebraska couple for three turbulent years (1994-97) as they struggle to hold on to their farm. In Part 1, it begins to take an emotional toll, particularly on the moody and insecure husband, Darrell Buschkoetter. “He's really hard to deal with,” his wife, Juanita, concedes, and it seems that their marriage might be in as much peril as their farm. Written, directed and produced by David Sutherland.
