Harry never had children but lived at the farm and sugared with his brother Norman in his retirement until his death.
Norman met Elsie V. Crane in ______ and they were married after Norman returned from his service in the Navy in WWI. They had two daughters, Janice and Charlene who were both raised on the farm. Norman and Elsie had extensive gardens and raised over 1,000 chickens. They shipped eggs to Town and owned the farm for the remainder of their lives.
Janice Fletcher and George Thayer met and were married in the sixties. They had three children, Edward, Carol and Marianne.
Today, we raise pork, chicken, beef and turkey for on farm consumption. All of these critters are raised free range in movable paddocks so they always have fresh grass to eat. We butcher all but the beef right here on the farm.
We have incorporated draft animal power in some of our operations on the farm. Ozzie is our 15 year old Belgian Gelding Draft that we have had for about three years. Tucker is a 10 year old Belgian draft. We have paired him with Ozzie and they work well together.
Much of the 110 gallons of pure maple syrup that we produce annually is sold within the community. Ask about availability.
Most of our produce is grown for on farm consumption. When the harvest is more than we need we make it available to the public.
Keep the food chain as close to home as possible. That's the goal. Produce it ourselves, naturally, on our own land with our own resources. Draft-power whenever possible.
