Jannet Walsh, Murdock, Minnesota
- jne2013, CNN iReport producer
Meet iReporter Jannet Walsh from Murdock, Minnesota, population 303.
The local freight trains are running day and night in the rural community her family has called home since the late 1800s. Jannet’s family was part of a colony made up of mainly poor immigrants from Ireland that learned to become farmers, helping to feed the world.
The local Murdock grain elevator pictured behind Jannet in the video, is where regional farmers bring their harvest of grains and are sent out to feed the nation and beyond.
Jannet has a blog about rural time in Minnesota, http://mnnativedaughter.com.
How this video was photographed: This vdeo was recorded with an iPhone 4, iRig Mic, and a Windcutter, a fur windscreen for wind noise reduction, all hand held.
