Farm Story with Jerry Apps Previous Broadcasts

KQED 9: Sun, Aug 9, 2015 -- 11:00 AM

A portrait of farm life seen through the eyes of a boy growing up in rural America in the 1930s and 1940s. Using archival photos and film, teacher, author and historian Jerry Apps tells the story of growing up in Wild Rose, Wisconsin - America's archetype rural farming community. The documentary is the personal and family story of millions of Americans who grew up on farms. Like a family photo album for millions of Americans, it takes the viewer through memories of "things that aren't there anymore" and of experiences that created their values of hard work, determination and community - values that drive a generation of Americans who grew up on the farm. It carries the viewer from childhood on the farm in the '30s to the rural electrification that changed American farms and rural life forever.
