A note from Carolyn Mager – Producer of Rural Wonders

While growing up in Le Center, Minnesota I didn’t believe there was much noteworthy about rural living. Did anyone care to hear about planting and harvesting or how to milk a cow? What would the papers say about my community? “Man milks cows twice a day, every day.” When some of my new more urban college friends began to ask me about growing up on a farm, I was amazed by and appreciative of the interest they showed in my stories.

Inspired by this interest, I decided to collect stories from others in my community – stories I once found a touch boring and now find anything but. I hope you enjoy these as much as I do.
