Small-Scale Food Initiatives in Southwest Minnesota

In spring 2013 the IAS sponsored an oral history project focusing on small-scale food initiatives in southwest Minnesota. Bat of Minerva director Peter Shea carried out a series of interviews with individuals in Blue Earth, Steele, Watonwan, Brown, Redwood, Cottonwood, and Jackson counties. Drawn from outside of large-scale, mainstream agriculture, these voices represent current thinking and bold experiments around the topic of food in southwest Minnesota.
