Farm Equipment
by Erica

In Fermilab's property there is a display of farm equipment. The equipment has been collected for the last several years. The display consists of a dump rake, a side delivery rake, a steel wheeled wagon, two plows, a grain drill, a windrower, a corn picker, and a fertilizer spreader. The equipment is painted green, yellow, blue and orange so the display is easy to spot.

Scene of farmers using early farm equipment

Anybody can come see this display of farm equipment; it is found on the south side of Batavia Road near the Rt. 59 gate. It reminds us of how the land was farmed in the past.
