Farm Tools

Farming has been a way of life for many people around this area. It takes a lot of work and effort to keep a farm going, and that is just as true today as it was when the farms first began around the area.
To get the work done, there have been a number of specialized tools made for each task. Below you’ll find some photos of old farm tools that have been sent to us. See how many you know, and if you have any stories about using them, be sure to send them our way, too.
