Stories Of Southern Oregon: Small Farmer Helper


The days when 90% of the American population lived on farms are long past.  Farm population is smaller, and farms are generally bigger. 

Generally... but small farms still dot the countryside, and they can use a little guidance in agriculture and business practices.  Extension agents help, especially the ones who focus on small farms, like Maud Powell

Powell is an Associate Professor of Practice at Oregon State University, the co-owner of Wolf Gulch Farm, co-operator of the Siskiyou Sustainable Cooperative, and our guest in this month's edition of Stories of Southern Oregon.  She visits the studio along with Maureen Flanagan Battistella, who collects the stories for the Southern Oregon Digital Archive.
