About the Show

Broadcast Thursdays at 8:00pm and Sundays at 11:00am on PBS North

Northern makers flourish with WDSE-WRPT’s Making It Up North. Start-up wisdom and maker advice mingle in real-life scenarios filled with trial and error, humor, and success. Gain perspective and inspiration about what it takes to make it in today’s business climate from creative entrepreneurs on the front lines.

Two special Making It Off the Land episodes dig into locally sourced ingredients and opportunities. Making It Up North explores the Farm-to-Table movement with northern growers and makers, meeting the demand for homegrown food. Partners include Ykers Acres & Lake Ave Café, Farm Lola & Love Creamery, Forest Owl Farms & Northern Divide in Virginia; and The Food Farm & Duluth Grill. A special Lake-to-Table episode features fisherman Steve Dahl & Chef Scott Graden of the New Scenic Café.

12-new episodes in the works for 2019, starting Thursday, January 10, 2019. Broadcast on WDSE’s main channel PBS North and on Create. Features include start-ups across Minnesota’s Arrowhead, from Ely and Hibbing, to Grand Marais, Two Harbors and Duluth.
