Photo 42-JHA-10


Yes, it is our family farm. My sister still lives there.

Hi Scott! That's great to hear that the photo is of your family farm in Hancock County. It must hold a lot of memories for you and your sister. What kind of farming did your family do on the property back then? Can you tell us more about what has changed on the farm since the photo was taken in 1974? We'd love to hear more about your experiences growing up in Hancock County!

My father was just starting father was just getting started with his farrow to finish operation. He had pure-bred Yorkshire’s. Along with the farm he owned the full service gas station that you see in the foreground. My grandmother lived in the trailer next to us to the right of our home.
