Only when I was young and impressionable (I'm in my 50's now). Great-Grandparents (moms fathers parents kind of thing) had a working farm in Jefferson county in Oregon back in the day (50's-70's). We kids would spend summers there every so often. Picking corn, green beans and other small crop items. Manually hoeing in-ground crops (carrots, etc) was a stone bitch. I even learned how to catch, behead, boil and pluck a chicken. All of these were true life experiences for a kid who lived and grew up in the "big city" (Los Angeles). I never could figure out how Gma could cook anything let alone a full meal on a wood fired cast iron stove.

yes, we have 6 poultry houses, horses, and the occasional crop. I hate it when dad comes and says "I need a favor". I went and got a degree just so he wouldn't hand the farm down to me

I was bailing hay all last week, we managed to get about 1500 bales off the first cutting this year. Now for the drought. My Grandparents own a 300 acre Horse Farm in Ooltewah so I help out as much as I can. Was taught to drive in a old 66 chevy flatbed farm truck hauling hay.

you have to love how hard it is to keep the cars clean on a dirt road. I get so angry sometimes...I just can't drive slow enough not to get the rear dirty!
