Antique Farm Power – A Key to the Past
Farming is a way of life, and as technology prevails its a much more automated, and much less harsh way of life. But a short examination of agricultural history shows just how different that way of life was.
With farming there were reasons for everything, and waste was a sin. We could learn a lot. For example in years gone by having a nice big house out in the country meant one thing. You owned a farm, and needed to live there to manage the farm. To live in the country miles away from civilisation for any other reason would be foolish. You had important work to do, and you were there to do it. Now, however with the percentage of people deriving their income from the land being much lower, many people have big houses in the country with no farm. This would be hard for the previous farming generation to understand.
