Spring Tooth Cultivator
After a vineyard has been disked, a cultivator is used to break the earth into smaller pieces for a leveller finish. This one, from the Vansickle Road farm of Jim Brown in St. Catharines, was used from about 1900 until 1980 when it was given to the Johnson family. From Art Johnson, St. Catharines Museum, 1998-432.
