farmthDo your roots go back to the farm?

It goes without saying that Clinton County is a farming community and many, if not most of us, either grew up on a farm or our parents or grandparents did. A hundred years ago a farmer could support his family on the food and small income derived from a forty or eighty acre farm. Farming has changed unbelievably since those days, and looking back at life on a Clinton County farm when horses were used to till the soil and huge steam traction engines threshed the grain is a fascinating experience.
