Wayne County Ohio... a mix of old and new.
August is a time for “making hay”in our area. The majority of our farmers have moved from the conventional small hay bales to large round bales that weigh 700 pounds or more. They do this because of efficiency.
While Wayne County is home to many “mega farms” it is also home to the Amish. The young man in the photograph is pulling his older John Deere bailer not with a tractor but with a “four horsepower” team.
