Tattersall Farm Part 1

Tattersall Farm is one of the many peaceful places in our city. This 150 acre farm was donated to the city back in 1999 by the former owners and to be kept as conservation land to enjoy.  
Being a lover of old stuff I was intrigued the by various old farm equipment on display in their rusty weathered state.
Many of the pieces here were horse drawn back in the day.
It is like a farm museum. There are posts to explain how the pieces of equipment were used.
  
Here is an old hay wagon frame below.
Of course the place needs to show an old John Deere!
I love the seriously corroded horseshoes! 
The horse drawn hay rake is quite cool. Although I have no interest in old farm equipment I really enjoyed checking out these pieces.
Particularly with envisioning them being horse drawn with an uncomfortable farmer on the seat.
I hope you enjoyed my little vintage farming tour. 

I will be back next week with the trails this farm has to offer! Thank you for stopping by. ~Val

  4. Quite a contrast to today's farm equipment, isn't it -- now they've got air-conditioned cabs with music systems, etc. Pretty sweet!

  7. the seat in the first pic is something that my mom always had in the house as she grew up on a farm in Nebraska. I don't think I've seen another since my mom .... how fun to see it here!

  14. I love old stuff like that. I like to imagine what it must have been like to live back then. I would sure miss my modern conveniences but it might be fun to try it out for a few days.

  15. So fun to see these pieces still on display. I can't imagine being a farmer back in the day of metal seats and no tractors with cabs!

  16. What a cool place to go Val! Those farmers worked so hard! Well, they do today too, but more back then! I hope they always keep this land the way it is, for the public to enjoy! I hate when things get lost and buildings go up instead! Hugs!
