Fairfield County, Ohio, 1978. Copyright © State Aerial. Share

This is the Rittinger residence as it appeared in 1978 when I was 5 years old.

All the barns have since gone and been replaced by modern machinery sheds. This picture helps remind me of the memories of growing up on a farm and playing with my sister in the "OLD" barns. My dad and I still farm this farm where he has lived since 1970. We still split the corn planter with two hybrids, just like he and his dad did in this photo. This farm was purchased by relatives of our current landlords near mid century. We will plant our 41st crop on this land in spring of 2011.
