This Spring, I took a long 2-day drive trip from the east coast to the mid-west. The trip took me through many states; VA, MD, PA, West Virginia, OH, Illinois, WI, and MN. For whatever reason, the trip awakened in me a profound interest for what I saw and have been taking for granted; the American farms.
These farms are so beautiful; there are so many of them, and they are so different from one another. I don’t quite know what they produce; however, I appreciate their effort in contributing to our economy probably by producing meat product, grains, or poultry to mention few. I also saw pine tree and sod farms.
Some of these structures looked relatively new or are kept in top shape. You can tell by looking at my photos. The remains of others buildings just triggered my imagination about their prime years; what their role in the community was; what they produced or how beautiful they were back in those glorious days. Today the ruins still stand proud of what they did so many years ago.
Overall, I enjoyed what I saw and I feel grateful that the hard work of these farmers is helping me, you and our country to live a better life.
