My Farm Roots: Detasseling the Corn

Farm-Roots,-JacksonJackie Dougan Jackson grew up detasseling the corn on her family's Wisconsin dairy and seed corn farm. (Photo by Harvest Public Media) It’s time for My Farm Roots, a series from Harvest Public Media in which we hear Americans’ stories and memories of rural life.  Because when you hail from farm country, roots run deep.  In today's installment, produced by Harvest Public Media's Bill Wheelhouse, we hear from Jackie Dogan Jackson, who grew up on a dairy farm outside of Beloit, Wisconsin.
