Brad Pitt is teaching his children how to grow their own vegetables.

The 'Fury' star, who has six children, Maddox, 13, Pax, 11, Zahara, nine, Shiloh, eight, and six-year-old twins Knox and Vivienne, with wife Angelina Jolie, got their whole family involved in building an organic vegetable patch and irrigation system at their home in Los Angeles, as he wants them to be aware of where their food comes from.

A source told US OK! magazine: ''He spent hours outside with the kids, showing them how to do things.

''It's incredible how he managed to juggle his crazy work schedule with being a father. He's constantly coming up with new games and projects for them.

''Brad had a very simple childhood in Missouri, so he's determined to raise strong, emotionally sound kids who aren't caught up in the crazy, vain world he and Angie live in.''

The 51-year-old actor admitted last year that he loves being a farmer since buying a French winery, Miraval, in 2012

He said at the time: ''I'm a farmer now. I love learning about the land and which field is most suitable for which grape, the drama of September and October ... I enjoy cleaning the forest and walking the land. [It is] the antithesis of the drive, the want, the need to get ahead indicative of life in Hollywood.''
