A spin-off of the long-running series The Incredible Dr. Pol, The Incredible Pol Farm follows three generations of Dr. Pol’s family work to turn 350 acres of land into a family farm. The brand-new show is set to make its series premiere on Saturday night on Nat Geo Wild. Dr. Jan Pol has been a practicing veterinarian for more than half his life. In 1981 he and his wife, Diane, opened a vet business out of their home, and over the years it has grown to service more than 19,000 clients. Dr. Pol was born in the Netherlands, where he later studied veterinary medicine at Utrecht University, graduating in 1970. He and his wife moved to Michigan where he worked as a vet for 10 years, before opening his vet out of his home in 1981.
“I’ve done this veterinary business for 50 years. I’ve worked with farmers all my life,” the vet says in the video, as the clip shows some of Dr. Pol’s past clients, including pigs, cows, and cats. “Michigan is a good place for farmers,” he continues. “There are dairy farms, a lot of crop framing here. It has very good soil.”
