Welcome To Plathville brings us Kim and Barry, conservative and strictly religious parents of nine children.
In the TLC-show we see the family who apparently live on their farm in Georgia. There the children are completely isolated from technology and things like soft drinks and a normal upbringing. Well, that’s the storyline that pushes TLC.
But it seems that the Plaths may not really live there. That would make a mockery of the fans following the series.
Welcome To Plathville’s the isolation of farm life
The series, which premiered on 5 November, is about how these very isolated children know little or nothing about the outside world. TV shows Ace reported that they chose the lifestyle “to let the children be children.” Kim, the matriarch doesn’t let much happen there, except apparently work in the house and around the farm.
Kim Plath said that they only have “limited technology” and limited “access to computers”. Their children have no idea who people like Justin Bieber and Tom Brady are. Or, so we’ve been told. The whole story revolves around how Ethan’s wife, Oliva, brings ideas of emancipation to the children.
Of course Kim Plath is not happy with Olivia Plath and these dangerous ideas from outside. Their isolated life on the farm seems like a cocoon of peace, threatened by emancipated Olivia Plath. In their view of Olivia’s relationship with the Plath parents,
Without A Crystal Ball on YouTube notes cracks in the story. According to them, Ethan began to widen the gap even before he married Olivia Plath. It seems that he never really wanted to be isolated there. Plus, his sister Moriah Plath scabies about life there. So it seems that the perfect life of the Welcome To Plathville family is not so perfect. And maybe they don’t live there at all.
Plath family farm advertised as a BnB rental
Soap Dirt reported that they ran into the farm on BnB. Now there are other properties. Kim is described as a ‘Superhost’ on the site. Possibly she got that appreciation because they also rent out another building. This is listed as ‘Cabin on the Pond’ near Cairo, Georgia. Since June of this year he got 20 reviews. But it is the farm that is more interesting. The mention of the family Welcome To Palthville shows that it was advertised as ‘Farm in The Retreat at Silver Rein’. That’s the same property in Wigham, Georgia, where we filmed the show.
The outlet also reported: “In 2017, Barry and husband Kim Plath bought a house for $55,000 in Cairo, Georgia. It’s close to a highway and around the corner from a Walmart, Taco Bell and Pizza Hut. It is also quite close to Ethan Plath and the home of his wife Olivia. “
Is that where they live now? It is interesting to note that. It can’t be comfortable for Olivia Plath if her parents-in-law, who don’t like her, live around the corner. It is of course possible that they now live there and stayed on the farm while filming the show.
