Why The midland Agrarian?
Cultural geographers and students of dilalect call the great area of the Ohio valley, upper South and lower Midwest the midlands of the US. There have been many great southern agrarians, like Thomas Jefferson,Richard Weaver,and Wendell Berry. There were some great Northern Agrarians like Russell Kirk and Eric Sloane. The great middle area sometimes get overlooked (though we do have Louis Bromfield, Conrad Richter, and Gene Logsdon). I thought it would be fun to blog about some of my agrarian interests and life---besides, granny miller didn't want me hacking into her blog anymore.
