The episode stars William Windom ("The Farmer's Daughter") as David Adams and Patricia Breslin ("I Saw What You Did") as Millie Adams, David's long suffering wife who loathed life on a farm. Two juvenile brothers from Canada, Steve Barringer and his little brother Leslie, starred as the couple's two sons.

The new series was produced by Reed's then husband, Tony Owen, who also produced The Donna Reed Show. The episodes was not picked up as a series after Reed decided to not to retire and The Donna Reed Show continued to air for four additional seasons. The concept of city folk moving to the country was used again by rival studio Filmways as "Green Acres".
