I have never understood how some kids could have an entire farm given to them and not want it either. My dad and grandpa farmed and I always tagged along with them always helping them, watching them learning things, we always had old machinery that needed fixing and I learned so much from them, fast forward when I was choosing what i wanted to do for a living and knowing that farming wouldnt work out I knew I loved fixing things so I became a mechanic, I work everyday on JD combines, planters, SP sprayers ect. and I also hobby farm some as well and I hope that when I have a son that he follows the same path as I have and be interrested in the same things I am because I wouldnt trade a minute of the times I spent with my dad and grandpa on the farm or at tractor shows, auctions ect.

Just when I was old enough to work on the farm we moved to town. Grandpa sold his farm the same year. Grandpa said there was no future in the small family farm. That was 1966. His 180 acres has sold several times over the years. Last time it fetched $200,000 and is corporate hunting ground now. I work on most anything with an engine to pass the time.
