Wintertime On the Farm

Posted by Allyson

Activity tends to slow on a farm come wintertime, and Wagner Farm is no different.  The corn has been harvested, and the fields have nearly all been plowed.  However, there is still much work to be done behind the scenes.  Just like on farms of the past and present, there are fences to be repaired and equipment to be fixed.  Andy continues to restore and rebuild the two-horse open sleigh that Todd wrote about in an earlier post, and Richard, one of our dedicated volunteers, has been busy for the past few weeks replacing several of the anchor posts on the white fence along the northeast end of the farmyard.  You can see from the photo above, they've become good friends working in the basement together!
