They farm the old-fashioned way.
Fall is harvest time. Tractors, trucks, and other machines whirred and buzzed in most fields. But not in this one.

READ MORE: Some farmers in the United States prefer the old way of farming. They do not use modern machines. They have horses and mules to pull the tools they use to plow, plant, cut, and harvest the grain. Some of these farmers live near Colfax, Washington. They want to keep the land the way it was farmed years ago. They want to teach others what they know. Deuteronomy 8:10 reminds us, “You shall bless the Lord your God for the good land He has given you.”
