LISMORE — About 30 years ago in the midst of one of the worst farming downturns in the Midwest since the Great Depression, Gene Metz of Lismore was “real close” to being out of farming. The southwest Minnesota farmer had to sell some of his land. He survived, as did many family farmers that had land that was already paid off by their families decades earlier. But across the Upper Midwest many others didn’t survive as high interest rates and low commodity prices took their toll. It tore apart families, causing suicides and political upheaval across the region.
