Fort Royal Fourth of July > Study of a Contemporary American Family Farm

Here's a photo essay I did about the workings of a successful American family farm in 2009:

Fort Royal Farm, July 3, 2009 > Grain Bin, Constructed 1970

It's a pretty good personal document (for the Coppler family-- my girlfriend's wife's mother's family) and general document of smaller-scale farming in north central Ohio today.

I took these pictures while a tour that her uncle gave to me and the kids. The photos, notes, links, and tags provide info on a wide range of modern farm topics:

All hail thriving American farms.
