A Modern Farming Family Issue Date: 11-07-1999

Cool Spots imageThings have changed a lot since the days of horses and hand plows. Start up your high-tech tractor and head out to the Midwestern fields with some ordinary farm families. Ring the doorbell at Troublesome Creek at www.pbs.org/wgbh/amex/trouble. They'll be happy to have you, because they want to teach people about the work of modern farmers. The Jordans have been on the same land in Iowa for generations. Daughter Jeanne made a film to show the world how tough it is to hold on to a family farm. Hang out for a while and learn some things about the history of farming in America. They'll show you the family album, too. Farming in today's USA is hard work, so head out to the heartland, and you'll appreciate the families who help to keep food on our tables.
