Mary Swander presents Map of my Kingdom, starring Maria Vorhis and Jan Joannides leading a talk-back in Mantorville, MN.
“In Minnesota, the average farm operator’s age in 2012 was 56.6. In Iowa, that number was 57.1.That means significant farmland will soon be transitioned on from its original owners — 93 million acres in the country between 2015 and 2019, according to the USDA Economic Research Service.”
Mary’s play addresses the issues of making farm transitions in the present day and how it intertwines with family relations.
