The Mike Yarosh farm on the east side of Whitehead Rd south of Peck Wadsworth Rd, Penfield. Yarosh bought this 160 acre farm from Mrs Yarosh's father, Lad Reman, in 1951. In 1956 they had 36 head of Holstein cattle and grew the crops to feed them. At that time is was considered one of the most modern dairy farms in the area with all milking done mechanically.

Featured as Mystery Farm number 51 by the Wellington Enterprise on November 21, 1956. Search the Lorain County home page for "mystery" to see other farms.
