Jerry Apps: A Farm Story Price: $24.81 (as of 05/06/2024 22:40 PST- Details)


Rural historian and creator Jerry Apps evokes memories of a time when almost as many American citizens lived on farms as in cities, fieldwork used to be done with horses, cows were milked by hands, lanterns were the source of sunshine, and community used to be very important for survival. Jerry invites viewers to his small piece of land in central Wisconsin, where they’ll hear of his circle of relatives’s efforts to revive an old granary, develop a productive vegetable garden in sandy and rocky soils, manage the woodlots, reestablish a prairie, and experience nature’s sounds and silences. Produced and initially broadcast by our partners at Wisconsin Public Tv.
