Default title written on barn roof

my brother swears he remembers seeing an episode once where they were filming a movie on the Douglases farm and the film was called "GREEN ACRES" and they painted the title on the barn roof and that's why they show that shot in the opening.
But I don't ever, ever, ever, remember seeing that episode. Was there one? Or is he confused?

There is an episode where the Dept. of Agriculture makes a film on the Douglas farm to show the "pitfalls" of farming. But they did not shoot the painted barn roof.

I've often wondered where the location of the real barn with the painted title on the roof was, specifically. If the location is known, it's possible to go back and find vintage aerial photos and see it from the air. I found the Jupiter 2 spaceship mock up (from Lost in Space) in old aerial photos of the 20th Century-Fox lot from the 60s. If the GA barn wasn't too far out of town, it's possible it shows up in some of these old survey photos.

I've searched several times using https://www.historicaerials.com/viewer but I have yet to find the barn itself. All the opening scenes were shot in Thousand Oaks, CA back when it was actual countryside. Unfortunately there aren't any specific coordinates and it's a massive area to search. And most of the structures were demolished I believe in the '80s.

I think the only remaining structure from the opening is Newt's farmhouse (the first one you see) near Paso Robles.
