Peterson is the subject of Taggart Siegel’s feature documentary film The Real Dirt on Farmer John. In 2006, John’s first book was published, Farmer John’s Cookbook: The Real Dirt on Vegetables. He currently has two books in development: I Didn't Kill Anyone Up Here and Farmer John on Glitter and Grease. Peterson helped to found the Angelic Organics Learning Center in 1999 and also helped to found his region's CRAFT initiative in the mid-90s.
