The series is available online in Canada via CBC Gem.
Farm Crime is a true crime documentary series investigating unconventional offences in the
world of farming and agriculture.
Each episode examines a case that wouldn’t typically make the front page; instead of tales of
murder, assault or violent home invasion, the series explores crimes that take place in the
margins – the fields, farms and secretive small towns that dot the Canadian countryside.
Disappearing truckloads of blueberries. Millions of stolen bees. Herds of rustled cattle. These
are farm crimes, and they exact a real toll on largely rural victims who don’t always get their
due. Farm Crime approaches their stories with cunning curiosity, speaking directly with the
fascinating people who populate these worlds, seeking answers, closure and justice.
