Agriculture in Anoka County 

From 2003-2005, the Anoka County Historical Society received grant money for a project to document the history of agriculture in Anoka County in the form of oral interviews. The interviews are with Anoka County farmers about their family and farming histories. Transcripts are provided below as PDF files; interview audio files may be accessed in the Reading Room at ACHS.

Please note that sometimes interviews were conducted with more than one person at the same time, so the same transcript may be linked for different names. The list is alphabetical by last name of the person who was interviewed.
