About the Presenter(s)
Bryce Black, LoTec Windmill Service
Bryce Black and his wife Kathleen Plunkett-Black have lived since 1978 on their 60-acre homestead, Ostensible Farm. They live near Arkansaw, Wisconsin, at the northern edge of what geologists call the Driftless Area. They hope any future Ice Ages will pass them by. Bryce and Kathy's driveway is NOT for the faint of heart. They live in an owner-built home made of mostly salvaged materials. Bryce firmly believes in the old Chinese proverb: 'Man finish house, man die,' since it virtually guarantees him eternal life.
