Happy Farm Art Friday everyone:)
While my friends and I explored the Mulberry River Valley a few days ago, I noticed this old farm implement hidden in the trees at the edge of a field. Inside the boundaries of the Ozark National Forest, we were surrounded by natural beauty and true Arkansas history in a place largely unchanged by time. This hay rake looked at home, part of the landscape. I wondered if its original owner lay buried in the Yale Cemetery only steps away.

Yes, let’s take some time this weekend to do what Tolstoy said… okay?

Farm. Food. Garden. Life.
Video below shows a similar hay rake (named Fergie) in action. Very cool!
