Her YouTube fame has helped her gain a lot of opportunities including sponsorships and collaborations. As she continues her endeavors, it is expected that her wealth will also continue to increase.
Early Life and Education
Very little is known about Farm Girl Jen’s life before her rise to fame online. There are no details regarding her childhood, and her family. After matriculating from high school, she enrolled at Tulane University in which she took up a degree in business during the 1980s. The university is located in New Orleans and was originally a medical college before becoming a comprehensive university.
It is the ninth oldest private university in the Association of American Universities and their medical school is also one of the oldest in the country. They are known to have graduated various prominent inventors, entrepreneurs, and political personalities. They’ve also graduated prominent screenwriters, actors, writers, law firm partners, and billionaires. Some of their most notable alumni include Stanley Motta, Ricardo Salinas Pliego, David Filo, and Jerry Springer.
After completing her degree, she then lived mostly away from the spotlight, and married her husband a few years later. She started a family and didn’t envision a career online, as it was not a possibility back then.
Eventually, Jen discovered the potential for creating content through the website YouTube. It is a video sharing website owned by Google that was originally the idea of three former PayPal employees. It allows users to upload, view, comment, rate, and share videos while also having the opportunity to subscribe to other users. Since its inception, it has become the biggest source of corporate media and user generated videos. Some of the videos available on the website include movie trailers, documentary films, video blogs (vlogs), music videos and many more. The popularity of the website has led to numerous companies and corporations investing in their own channels.
She created her channel sometime in 2008, when the website was relatively new. She posted numerous types of videos, including cosmetics, cooking, and animals for sale at her farm. Eventually, she noticed that her content which showcased her doing activities at her farm was gaining a lot of attention. She decided to do more of these types of videos showing vlog type content, as she went about her day-to-day endeavors at her farm. This would help her channel rise in popularity significantly, as some of her most popular videos would gain millions of views.
Praise and Criticism
For the next decade, Farm Girl Jen would upload on a regular basis, promoting her videos weekly. Her videos often consisted of her doing various activities. One of the reasons she became highly popular is due to her physique and looks. Despite being over 50 years old now, she manages to remain very fit while also having a youthful look. Many credit it to regular trips to the gym, combined with various cosmetic products. Most of her popular videos have her wearing bikinis, swimwear, and even just a towel.
This has also led to a lot of criticism on her, as most of her videos are labelled by viewers as click bait. They are mainly there to showcase her physique, and the videos don’t have much substance except to appeal to those who are into Farm Girl Jen. This has led to numerous dislikes and negative comments on her videos, but she doesn’t seem to mind too much. Many viewers also point out that some of her videos are constructed in such a way as to take advantage of the men interested in her, as at the end of the day, they still lead to revenue from YouTube. This strategy has allowed her to accumulate almost 600,000 subscribers.
Personal Life and Social Media
For her personal life, it is known that Jen has been married to Jay since 1988, who is also referred to as Exoman in her videos; they have two children together. Despite marketing herself as a farm girl, her fame on YouTube has allowed her to gain a lifestyle that is far from an ordinary farm life. She is often seen boating, going to resorts, travelling to various locations, and taking care of many pets.
