Farm Life


Written By: Gary Wonning

In Nineteen-Forty-Seven, when I was three years old, my parents bought a small farm near Napoleon Indiana. The previous owners abandoned the property several years previous and as a result, there was a lot of work necessary to bring the farm up to being a productive, profitable enterprise.

My dad and mom had originally intended on buying the Brum farm near Batesville, the banker wouldn’t lend them the money because he thought we couldn’t make a living on that farm.

Life was a lot slower and simpler in the fifties and sixties.

I’m not sure how he decided we could make money on this farm.
