Rural historian and writer Jerry Apps evokes memories of a time when almost as many Americans lived on farms as in cities, fieldwork was done with horses, cows were milked by hands, lanterns were the source of light, and community was essential for survival. Jerry invites viewers to his small piece of land in central Wisconsin, where they'll hear of his family's efforts to restore an old granary, develop a productive vegetable garden in sandy and rocky soils, manage the woodlots, reestablish a prairie, and enjoy nature's sounds and silences. Produced and originally broadcast by our partners at Wisconsin Public Television.
