Excerpts from the report Introduction: This survey of farm family food consumption in two counties of Minnesota in the spring of 1950 was undertaken to provide up-to-date information on the consumption patterns and dietary levels of a small, homogeneous group of farm families. This particular area was chosen so that, in addition to providing data on rural consumption patterns, it could be used for comparison with the studies made during two previous years in nearby Minneapolis-St. Paul. For this survey, 235 families provided estimates of quantities of foods used in a week and information on certain food practices during the preceding year. To obtain the information on a week's food consumption, a food list was used and the respondent was asked to recall which foods had been used during the preceding week, the quantities used, and the prices of purchased foods.
