Agricultural historian Bonnie Lynn-Sherow closes Colorado College's State of the Rockies series tonight, with a talk on "The Mythological Power of the Family Farm." The Kansas State University history professor connects the history of the family farm ideal with Jeffersonian principles. KRCC's Michelle Mercer spoke with Lynn-Sherow about that history, and met up with some eastern Colorado farmers to see how the Jeffersonian ideal holds up today.
