Little River Bottom
One Hundred Years of Family Farming
The 56th Missouri Photo Workshop (MPW)

Photo by Melody Ko

It is harvest season for the Loehnig's small 'river bottom' farm located in McKittrick, 2-miles north of the Missouri River. Terry and Marilyn Loehnig are the fourth generation farmers and their son, Erich, is the fifth generation to cultivate the land.

But despite their history, their kind may be endangered. Modern amenities and occupations now distance us from our food and shelter us from its journey to the plate. Fewer families like the Terry and Marilyn Loehnig farm corn and soybeans, raise their own livestock, and kill, prepare and preserve all the foods they produce. Today, smaller farms face a greater challege to compete and the heir apparents are either less interested or unwilling to perform the time-consuming work. This lifestyle is rare in America and one that fully participates and responds to the natural cycles of life.
