VANISHING SMALL FARMS
As the sun sets slowly in the west, this image depict the changes that have been taking place in farm areas all across America. It also illustrates the fertile black soil of western Indiana and Illinois. The tile roof home on the horizon once housed the family who cared for 400 acres raising corn, soybeans, pigs, chickens and a few guiney hens. A log cabin once remained behind the house reminding one of earlier generations. The house sets empty now as new owners consolidating neighboring farms plow for miles before turning back for another multi-row pass with giant tractors. Eventually this home with its many memories will be entirely removed for the convenience of the plow.
