The family farms northern fence borders the city limits of Union,MO. My great grandfather bought this place in 1920. His side of the family came from Germany in the 1860's and settled in an area about 30 miles West of here called Port Hudson. My mothers side is a mix of German and Swiss.

20 miles east of Binghamton, NY and I81. The Susquehanna river and I88 are the north and south borders of the farm. Interesting topic. I did a member map in 2004 while I was laid up from surgery

Used to be in PA.................But I may have moved to the Soviet Union and never relocated?????

That has got to be the dumbest post I’ve ever made; ‘East of the Delaware River’ would put me in NEW JERSEY......

I live in Gatineau Quebec, The farm has been in the family since 1919. I am the third generation (and probably the last)! My grandfather died of a heart attack in the barn in 1979, my father lived here all his life until he died in 1999 and I’ve been here all my life!

 I live 15 minutes from Ottawa Ontario (the capital of Canada)

 I am 2 hours from Montreal, 5 1/2 hours from Toronto, six hours from Bloomsburg Pennsylvania, About 3 hours From Chris NY, 5 1/2 hours from VTfireman in Vermont (I have never been there… But maybe someday)

 When you look at the big picture I’m just a dot on the map! LOL

If I'm not mistaken Dale is the last farmer in his area, on his homeplace side of the road he is surrounded by city, pretty awesome sight aside from spotting an IH tractor driving by

Currently hailing from Berwyn, PA - about 25 west of Philadelphia, very close to Valley Forge. 
 

I grew up in Sudbury, MA, about 25 miles west of Boston. Family farm was leased for nursery stock for years before being developed in the mid 90’s. 
 

Great topic @vtfireman85!  Thank you for starting it.

Shelby County Ohio. I tried to come up with some interesting factoid or trivia to tell about it, but honestly I got nothing. It's a nice place, I like it here, but we are the home of nothing in particular.

The only historic thing that I can think of about my hometown, it’s the oldest village in Illinois. Next year we will celebrate 300 years.

Is that Custer co?  Broken Bow?

 

NW WA.  48'99" parallel and apx 20 miles inland from Boundary Bay WA/BC

Visited some friends out that way back in '97.  Anselmo/Dunning region.  Worked, played and had a wonderful week out there.  Learned to run a drag rake on a backward Super C and repair pump leathers on a windmill pump among other things!   Very beautiful country and lovely people.

 

Central Iowa.   5th generation on our farm that dates back to the land grant.  25 minutes east of Kal.

There used to be quite a few reversed tractors in the area.  There are a few people that stack yet but big round balers have pretty well taken over.

Who were you at around Dunning? I went to 9 years of school there. Guessing you were at McGinns, Cooksley or Zutaverns?

I picked up cattle in Crawford NE last summer, someone not too Far East of there had an alfalfa field with some big, beautiful stacks in it. Like Hesston 60 size stacks.
