I never see one of these without thinking of the Farm. Grandpa had an old Ford-Ferguson and, for the last few years, a nice 8N or 9N very, very much like the one in this picture. He was proud of it and always wanted to have implements for it. He wanted a front-end loader, but never got one.
Among other things, this summer, I’m working hard on polishing up my manuscript for a book I have been calling Licking County Farm. It is a collection of stories about family faith and heritage based on the farm my grandfather and grandmother Pierpont owned from a few years before I was born to about the time I went away to college–just a season–just a “few days”… but what a memory it is. I have stories to tell.
Keep your eye on this site and I will let you know how you can get a copy of Licking County Farm or For a Few Days; Stories of Faith and Heritage From a Small Farm.
