img_4854There was a week back in September when I could not get catchy instrumental theme song to “Bonanza” out of my head. Blame the article I wrote for the November/December 2018 issue of American Spirit, which spotlighted the Historic Bagg Bonanza Farm in North Dakota.

“Bonanza” the show dealt in large quantities of gold. Along those same lines, bonanza farms were those to farms that grew large quantities of crops. Dating back to the mid-19th century, bonanza farming of the Midwest would become today’s industrial-scale farming. Interesting stuff!
