Another great photo-I really like that old door on the barn. Thanks
The farmer came out to chat while I was taking the photos. He had to be in his late eighties and had not done a lot of active farming in years from the look of him and the buildings. He said this had been a huge shade tobacco farm many decades ago. In the fields there were a couple of huge drying buildings really falling down. He said since they were not being upkept any that he lost one with each hurricane that came thru. It was the state of the barns that caught my attention in the first place.
Old old farm starting to fall apart by the way it looks. good post laura
Thanks Lyndee. Actually, Florida was farming long before it was beaches. The beaches didn't really become popular until the late 1800s or early 1900s when Flagler built a railroad down the east coast of Florida. The Florida spine (about the middle up to the Georgia border) and northern Florida are super good farm and grazing land. In fact, Florida had cowboys before the west did. North Florida is really pretty with rolling hills and fields with Live Oaks for shade.
i love this picture!
Nice one Laura. For some reason, I don't think of farms in Florida.
