Gene Stratton-Porter Video Part 4

3 GSP 1931 Postcards
3 GSP 1931 Postcards

Back in January I had posted about a series of videos that the Stratton Foundation was going to be posting (1 a month) about Gene Stratton-Porter and her homesites in Indiana. At that time I explained more in depth about who Gene Stratton-Porter was, but I haven’t done a good job following up with posts about the following videos. Today I’m going to share April’s posted video.

This is another member of the Michigan branch of the Stratton Family. They didn’t remember the connection until they found it again through genealogy, but they have totally embraced it now. This is Dennis Stratton, Founder of Anya Farms in Northern Michigan and he talks about how his organic methods connect with Gene’s philosophy.

Video 4 is called “April 2014: A Life of Farming with Dennis Stratton.” It was originally published on YouTube on April 9, 2014.

They say about it, “To bring in the spring for the month of April, we meet Dennis Stratton–Founder of Anya Farms in Northern Michigan. Dennis discusses how his current farming ideas correlate with Gene’s, as well as the importance of recognizing today’s farmers and good food.”
