Jerry Apps’ “The Land” to premier Dec. 2 on WPT

CALS emeritus professor Jerry Apps’ new Wisconsin Public Television special, The Land with Jerry Apps, will air on WPT at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 2. In the program, Apps shares his passion for the land and local farming with his grandsons, sharing lessons that can be gleaned from listening to The Land. With a wit and wisdom inherited from his father on their central Wisconsin farm, Apps recalls stories that unite the generations by informing a shared appreciation for the world around us.

A companion to Whispers and Shadows: A Naturalist’s Memoir, Apps’ new book from the Wisconsin Historical Society Press, The Land follows the popular Jerry Apps: A Farm Story and A Farm Winter With Jerry Apps.
