Episode 8: Lucan, MN

This episode tells the story of several different farmers in or around Lucan, MN.  Like the episode about Milan, MN it shows a glimpse of people going against the agricultural grain in small town Minnesota.  The episode is a bit longer than usual, but I think it gives you time to understand why people are returning to small scale farming.  After watching, please check out the farmers: Kicking Mule Farm, Miles of Pork, Batalden Farm and Brau Brothers Brewing Company. Oh and stick around till the end of the video, or fast forward, because I saved the best part for last.

In support of local farmers and The Perennial Plate, Minnesota Cooks is matching donations to the show up to $700 for the first five days that this video is up!

  1. I watched this latest installation with a smile that just kept getting bigger throughout the video. I warms my heart to see the "next" generation embracing values that will truly lead to better living and health – a movement of back to the land, family, real food. Keep up the good work!

    ps. The sound on this episode is great!!! – (but the title says episode 9….don’t shoot me, I’m just the messenger)

    Inspiring to see the age group that tends to tackle the burden of sustainable agriculture. It gives me hope that by the time my kids are my age, strong change [esp in philosophy of food culture] may actually get made.

  5. […] their beers local, and even grow some of their hops on site. It may be small, but it’s made a big splash in the local food […]

    I recently found these seven year old (and still fresh) videos. I have this fantasy of ditching the city and moving to rural Missouri to grow stuff. It might happen. Probably won’t. Either way, keep up the good work!
