This week’s featured video is a historic film used to recruit Alabama farmers into the Tennessee Valley Cooperative, circa 1950.  This film merges the Alabama Extension Service, research from the Alabama Polytechnic Institute (became Auburn in 1960), and a farmer cooperative.   The film demonstrates the benefits of joining a farming cooperative, such as purchasing fertilizer, seed, and joint marketing. The 20-minute film has some great scenes of farm life in the late 40s and early 50s.  Sit back and enjoy this historic farming film from Charlie Dean’s Archive.
