That’s where Nathan Dorn grew up, where his grandfather farmed before him and where his father, uncles and cousin now farm beside him.</p><p>Dorn’s strong ties to the land made the decision to continue the family tradition of farming an easy one. But it also leaves him feeling misunderstood by the average American.</p> Tue, 25 Sep 2012 20:40:24 +0000 Camille Phillips/Harvest Public Media 6868 at http://hppr.org My Farm Roots: Entrusted with a legacy My Farm Roots: Grateful to be home http://hppr.org/post/my-farm-roots-grateful-be-home <p></p><p>Rose Alderson is a bright-eyed, energetic grandmother who loves her home a few miles outside of Nickerson, Kan. It’s the home her father was raised in and where she raised her kids, but the house is not the most important part of the Alderson place.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p><p>Alderson loves the barn and the silo. Neither building plays much of a role on the farm anymore, but to Rose, they are the soul of the place.&nbsp;&nbsp;</p> Fri, 14 Sep 2012 06:50:28 +0000 Frank Morris 6330 at http://hppr.org My Farm Roots: Grateful to be home
