I'm not to judge jury and executioner I just thought it would be fun to see how many guys do some farming or are around Farms.

My best friend was next door and I would help him load hay. On a 95* day,it always made me glad
it wasn't part of our operation!

All we can afford is antique farm equipment......so a lot of working on that stuff is part of the job too.

Funny thing about my chainsaw use. I grew up on an orchard and only once ran a saw on the farm. Back then it was the old style with 15-20' trees but the idea is to grow trees. Not cut them down.

Not a pic of our place but our trees had a lot more bulk to them. They were planted 27 trees to the acre. Today its all dwarf trees planted at maybe 1200 per acre.

No farming, but I am always trying to cultivate a better image...

However, I still own 10 tractors and some equipment.

Born and raised 4th generation dairy farmer. I'm not farming anymore since I got married etc. My dad is still working the farm but for how much longer idk. I go help him whenever I can. His health isn't great and he's trying to do everything by himself. Hes to stubborn to give in. He had a new dairy barn built a few years ago. We all told him he was nuts. He should of got out when he had the chance. Anyway I figure sometime in the near future he will finally give in and sell. That's gonna be a tough one for everyone. Here's a picture of the barn when it was under construction image.jpeg

my dad really likes his barn cats. they are supposed to help control mice and rats. I don't mind a few cats but he seems to always have way to many IMO. honestly I find them a PIA sometimes. They seem to be learning to move when the powered feed cart comes out or at least the smart ones know to move. he has a couple cats with short tails

It nice to see some small farms still running.
Around here there are so many guys going really big.

There's one farm that just keeps building and adding on.
I talked to one of the builders this fall and he said when they finish next summer. They'll have a little over 40 acres under roof.
