1. The Animals of a Turn of the Century Farm Marker
Inscription. The animals of a turn of the century farm were very important to the self supporting farmer. We have tried to represent some of the more common animals found on the farm. We presently have sheep, goats, beef cows, dairy cows and a team of mules. The animals will be found in one of the pastures surrounding the farm yard. You are welcomed to watch the animals but please do not feed or pet them.
