Unfortunatley the wishes of previous geerations aren't always followed. That is how we ended up with the log cabin! My great Uncle Norman (Pete as we called him)left this place to his grandchildren and Berea College to be managed as a Tree Farm. I don't know exactly what happened legaly, but the short of it is his daughter sued, broke his will, and sold the farm and the timber. Just a streak of luck we were in a position to buy at auction. The Amish certainly are hard workers and seem to be good people. I am afraid they will be forced out through eminant domain and such as time goes on. Here the nicest farm in the whole county now has a federal prison on it. Taken by the government. Thanks for the comment and glad to have you reading, hope you enjoy!

I think of you guys every time I drive past though .A great thing happening lately is some farmers are signing up for farm preservation. you sell the developement rightds to the preservation trust and from that point forth it can only be used for ag. My parents put deed restrictions on 250 acres that they can only be ag. which is wonderful . Farms around here can go for a couple million for developement. but once a fafm is gon , its GONE. right? We have a lot of Amish around here so if the youngsters dont farm the Amish will . and they never sell . Sheila Dont know what kind of facility yet or who they sell to .

Should've grabbed the 224, but I was just a little shy. New Holland dealer here bought up a bunch of rolla bar rakes even new ones and has them for sale reasonable. While talking to my Mahindra dealer the other day he mentioned I might want to stay away from the 124s and 224s because they use a knotter designed by Gehl and with Gehl going out of the ag implement business parts might become an issue. Thanks for reading! Sheila, I have run into the same opposition here. I would encourage the neighbors to visit a modern facility. The smells have been greatly reduced. Will it be a broiler house or hen house? Know the company? People want to buy chicken at current prices, but want you to raise it a different way. Each state governs their poultry production differently. I'm with you on rather see someone farming chickens than houses. Lots of farmers have come to the conclusion the most profitable crop they can grow is houses. Couple that with a younger generation that doesn't want to farm and you get subdivisions. Thanks for reading and keep checking back! David,

My neighbor is putting up a chicken house here in Pa. His son whants to farm and the dad has cows. the kid doesnt want to milk cows so he is going that route. well , the neighbors are upset because they said DUST, AND SMELL/ every one wants cheap food, but not in their back yard. I would rather see farming than fancy housing developments going up. Developers come in and offer a million dollers and thats the end of another farm. Sheila Guess what ?

Glad to hear you got the chickenhouses straightened out. I've been looking for a rake myself but it seems that everyone has them hiding or has a v rake and doesn't want to get rid of the old bar rakes. But oh well, hope you get some more time to get things done around the farm.
