Old-Fashion Farming Days Hosted at Amish Farm

Merv and Edna Yoder are accustomed to growing things. After all, they live on a farm, and Merv is a fence builder by trade.

Antique farm equipment demonstrations began Friday at 2 pm. Dinner was also served Friday evening.

“At that first meeting,” explained Yoder, “we got to talking about how we didn't want to lose that history of how farming used to be done. We especially wanted to share that history with our children.”

Yoder calls himself a “pretty serious collector of old farm equipment.” After restoring the pieces to working condition, he demonstrates how they operate.

The family allowed visitors to camp overnight in their three-acre field. “We don't have running water, so campers had to walk 30 rods for a pitcher pump,” said Yoder. 30 yards equals around 500 feet.

Yoder says the event is summed up on a two-sided sign located on the farm's quarter-mile driveway. The entrance side of the sign says, “Welcome to the good ole days.” Upon leaving, the exit sign reads, “So long and be careful as you are now entering the real world.”
