We probably all have farming in our family backgrounds.  Once upon a time, more than 80 percent of the American population was involved in agriculture. 

Jania Schiefer-Wolff can name her ag ancestors, because they include her parents.  Jania herself is a farmer, with Not-So-Mini Pigs and Vogel Dairy. 

She is our focus in this month's Stories of Southern Oregon, curated by Maureen Flanagan Battistella.  Jania and Maureen visit the studio to discuss life on the farm.
