"Bulloch Family Ranch" (TV show) is a reality docu-series on UP that chronicles the dramatic everyday adventures of Julie and Rusty Bulloch, a fun-loving working class couple that juggles multiple jobs to make ends meet. High school sweethearts married for nearly 30 years, the couple aspires to find a balance between work and family. The two are fully committed to their kids — all 25 of them. Only two, Amanda and Brodie, are biological. The rest are teens who have lived at the Bulloch Ranch during various times of dire need. For almost two decades, the Ranch has served as a place where troubled teens are welcomed with open arms and given a chance to get back on the right track. Rusty and Julie are committed to giving all their "kids" a stable, caring, nurturing environment along with the tools they need to become productive adults.

The series kicks off with the arrival of two new troubled youths — high school football players Davin and Jordan. In most cases, these teens have sought out Rusty, Julie and the Ranch as their new home, but in Davin's case, a local social worker asked the family to help him following some incidents with the law. Meanwhile, in Jordan's case, son Brodie invited Jordan to the Ranch because he saw that the teen was teetering on the brink. As usual, Julie and Rusty followed their hearts and opened their home once again.

High-school sweethearts Rusty and Julie are working class Americans. Rusty wears many hats: high school football coach, cowboy, youth pastor, and is one of the country's few farriers — a specialist in horse hoof care. Julie manages the household, the shopping and the kids. Plus, she runs her own inflatable bounce house/waterslide business, sells meal replacement shakes, caters and does photography. The Ranch isn't a palace and they did not intentionally plan on becoming "parents" to so many troubled teens.

Their calling to care for struggling kids began 16 years ago when a young lady reached out for help. Ever since that day, they have extended their hand again and again. In central Florida, the Ranch has become known as a refuge for young adults on the path of self-destruction. For these kids, being taken in by the Bulloch family means being given a second chance, and in some cases, this may be their last chance to build a better future.

The Bulloch family's ranch has a proven track record for being a springboard to success. One of their young men, Claude Davis, went from running with street gangs to running on the football field as an outstanding Defensive End for SFU. Recently, with the continued support of the Bullochs, Davis had a stint on the NFL roster of the New York Jets as a walk-on and is now heading for the CFL.

Over the course of the season, viewers will get an inside look at an extraordinary household and the compelling life stories that unfold within the family. To be sure, there is never a dull moment when it comes to the Bullochs. Structure, discipline, love, faith, respect, amazing down home cooking and crazy pranks abound.

Season 2

In the sophomore season, viewers will meet 21-year-old single mother Ciara, and discover how a series of bad decisions by those closest to her have left this complicated, beautiful young woman utterly broke, pregnant again and in need of some love and stability. Her relationship with past ranch kid Shawndell (currently finishing a three-year term in prison for violating parole) is at a turning point. In addition, high school football player Jordan, 17, returns to face multiple challenges — his senior year, his shoulder injury recovery, and his distracting girlfriend. 24-year-old Wilson continues to work and save up for his wedding by living at the ranch. This being his second stay with the Bullochs, Wilson now thinks of himself as "an older, wiser voice" among the "kids." Finally, talented scholarship footballer and former ranch "kid" Claude Davis, 25, also returns to regroup, train and focus on his return to professional football. To be sure, there's never a dull moment when it comes to the Bullochs. Structure, discipline, love, faith, respect, amazing down home cooking and crazy pranks abound.
