It’s the place he remembers spending days as a kid, from morning to night, helping milk cows, work the fields and repair machinery.</p><p>He followed in his father’s and grandfather’s footsteps, building his own farming operation. But that path was suddenly interrupted nearly six years ago.</p> Sat, 24 Aug 2013 05:00:01 +0000 Grant Gerlock 20612 at http://hppr.org Still farming, despite disability 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/ Harvest Public Media 6330 at http://hppr.org My Farm Roots: Grateful to be home
