The Hairup Farm got an Electric Charge from the New Deal

My grandmother grew up on a farm in Montpellier, Idaho.  They had a simple life, making just enough to live. I grew up hearing stories about the Hairup Farm ranging from inducing labor before a storm so the town doctor could make it to the house, collecting eggs from chickens, or playing cards for entertainment.  Life was tough making just enough to survive, nothing extra.  The New Deal brought shocking changes to the lives of my family.
