A life-long Kentuckian, Tim has been an outdoor lover since his childhood. He was both fly-fishing and squirrel hunting by the age of 8. In 1984, Tim was injured in a motorcycle accident, which left him without the use of his right arm. Due to his strong will and ability to adapt to any situation, Tim continues to do what he loves best. He has learned to shoot a rifle cross-shouldered, tie a fishing line with his mouth, and shoot a bow and arrow with his teeth. Tim has won many regional archery competitions shooting against non-disabled shooters. He has also taken big game all over the United States including bear and other species.
In 1995, Tim became the host of Kentucky Afield. He has won several local and national broadcasting awards along with 3 Emmy’s for Host and Executive Producer of Kentucky Afield.
In 2012, Tim took his cooking skills to the small screen and is now hosting the very popular, "Tim Farmer's Country Kitchen" cooking show. Tim learned many secrets from a French chef about cooking wild game and recipes across the board. He also shares gardening and farming tips with his audience, including traditional food preservation and preparation such as canning, curing bacon and hams, making your own butter, building a pig pen and more.
Tim has done motivational speaking all over the United States including Walter Reed Army Medical Hospital near Washington D.C., to boost the moral of troops that had similar injuries. Tim uses humor and stories of grit and determination to entertain and inspire audiences from all walks of life. With Tim's new show, "Tim Farmer's Country Kitchen" many folks are asking him to speak as he gives cooking demonstrations.
