Fall Plowing

Plowing with Horses

The days work is done, giving the horses and the farmer rest.

Fall Harvest

Harvesting corn!

Interesting photo, with the chicken house in the foreground, then the cows, and then the neighbor’s farm. I suspect that with this setup the chickens would be classified free-range.

Amish Farmer in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, USA, still farming with horses, as is typical for the Amish.

Taking Notes

Hydroponic Fish Farm Tour

Hydroponic Fish Farm

The upper photo is of a plow that is manufactured locally for the Amish, many who use horses for their field work. In the lower photo, you see a plow in action!

The Amish farmer who bought this farm in 1998, is glad he decided to continue with the apple orchard, instead of dozing the trees, and having a dairy farm!

My attempt at taking a photo of this Amish farmer in the field with his team of horses, fertilizing with cow manure. I thought it would be a nice addition to the corn stalk shocks! It is unique, though you might need a magnifying glass to see the farmer. It doesn’t help that there was a post between the horses and me! I am still pondering whether to get a telephoto lens for my Sony alpha6000.

Produce

With the wet Spring, many farmers have not been able to plant their crops. It looks like this farmer got his corn planted.
