Gordon Fredrickson shares the heritage of the Minnesota farm family in the 1950’s. The family farm was located in Scott County just six miles away from where he met his future wife, Nancy, in New Market. New Market without many businesses managed to scrape out a good living during the hard times in the 1940s and 1950s. Two service stations, a general store, a butcher shop, taverns, a feed store, a farm produce store, a hardware store, a bank, and a post office served the towns people and the surrounding farm communities, which included the small dairy farm where Gordon was raised by his parents and his two older sisters. Gordon has written any books on various aspects of our agricultural heritage.
