Historian Jerry Apps remembers country winters spent on his family’s farm during the Great Depression and World War II. Apps recalls a time before electricity on the farm, when farmers milked cows by hand and "making wood" was a major part of winter's work.
Funding for A Farm Winter with Jerry Apps comes through generous gifts from Holiday Vacations, Ron and Colleen Weyers, Edward J. Okray Foundation, the Wisconsin History Fund, funded in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities and Friends of Wisconsin Public Television.
