On our road trip to the North West something that amazed us in the mountains were the farms and farming methods. The farms are on the mountain side with all farming done by hand using a U shaped handle with shovel end.
The farmers terraced the land by hand and farm it by being bent over. The mountains were steep and very tall, yet the farms followed the mountains all the way up and down.
While driving through an area we saw a sign with a familiar marking, USDA.
Given the farming methods, I’m guessing your grandpa Anderson would have had a tough time making a sale, don’t you think?
I doubt it, I’m sure he could have sold a few. But I did only see one tractor in all the fields that we drove by.
Love the sign. Ancient!
