Filthy Riches is an interesting reality show that airs on the National Geographic cable channel. This is one reality show that informs and has a lot less drama than others. In this series, we see groups of people around the United States that harvest natural resources and then sell them to make a living. The name of the programming tells a lot of the program because these drops require getting dirty and sweating to make living.
Some of the endeavors produces more monetary returns than others, but all the individuals like to opportunity to be their own bossed and maintain a strong level of independence.

There is a couple that travel to different locations throughout the country harvesting edible mushrooms and selling them to local chefs. Another group travels around the country to harvest burl from trees and then is used in high end wood products. Another guy catches eels and sells them at is local shop in upstate New York. All of it is quite interesting and exposing you to a world more than the typical 9 to 5.
