Ramel Bradley and AppHarvest to be featured on 60 Minutes


@AppHarvest

We’re very proud of the work our friend Ramel Bradley is doing with AppHarvest, and on Sunday night, they’ll both be featured on 60 Minutes.

The famous CBS News show recently spent a week in Eastern Kentucky to learn more about the high-tech agricultural company that’s building giant greenhouses to grow produce and create jobs in a region that desperately needs them. The “Rise of the Rest” Fund recently invested in AppHarvest as part of its focus on working with entrepreneurs outside of Silicon Valley and other coastal tech hubs. The fund is managed by AOL Co-Founder Steve Case and best-selling author J.D. Vance (“Hillbilly Elegy”) and is backed by more than 30 iconic business leaders, including Amazon Founder Jeff Bezos and former Google Chairman Eric Schmidt.

As part of the feature, 60 Minutes crews filmed Ramel leading the agricultural entrepreneurs class at Shelby Valley High School in Pike County. Talk about must-see TV.

Here’s a preview:

Sunday night, 7 p.m. ET. Set the DVR.
