"My Life on the Farm"
Wednesday, November 12, 9:00 am
Minnesotans living on farms in the 1930s hardly had a prosperous life. Quite the opposite - an agricultural depression dragged on for an entire decade. The men and women on these farms made enormous sacrifices to keep a roof over the family's head and food on the table. My Life on the Farm is based on the true story of Mary Jo, a farm girl growing up during The Depression with her rather large family of eighteen. Follow the story of this family and the mishaps, mayhem and joy this story brings. These are stories of desperation and hope, love and triumph. Fall in love with this family as they manage their lives on a small Minnesota farm.
