The farmer uses his pitchfork to move hay, straw or other materials from one place to another. Much like the pitchfork our blog is designed to throw ideas, stories, advice, and our experience from us to you. I hope that you find this blog educational, entertaining, and practical as you spend a day or so on our farm.

This past winter and early spring, my dad and boys restored a 1949 John Deere B. The tractor took lots of work, stripping off the old paint, new seals and gaskets, fixing some broken parts, and finally a new paint job and decal set. We haven't used the tractor much since the redo, but it has been used to pull our hay rake, mower/conditioner, and powering the log splitter. The boys' hard work and determination (along with grandpa's humor and coaching) paid off with a "job well done" Good job boys!
