Stories Of Southern Oregon: Former Farmers

The people we meet in our Stories of Southern Oregon segment mostly worked the land: farmers, timber workers, miners.  There are certainly not as many people working the land as there once were. 

Flo Bohnert has one of those stories to tell; she and her husband Don farmed land near Central Point that came into the city's urban growth boundary and has since been developed.  She shares her story in the studio.  Maureen Flanagan Battistella, who compiles the Stories of Southern Oregon, joins us as well.
