More History on the Farm

The brick on top of the hay

We were putting hay down in the chicken coops the other day when one of the bricks holding the plastic covering on the hay rolled off to the ground. There, we finally noticed (after all of this time!) scrawled across the top a clearly marked "100." This handmade brick was one of one-hundred made at some point in time, and possibly made on or near our property. We do not actually know where most of the bricks lying around the farm have come from, but many of them are old and handmade.
