Earlier this year I posted a photo from Images of America, Ellington, by Lynn Kloter Fahy, on the Ellington Farmers' Market Facebook page.
I was astounded at the number of likes
and comments requesting more photos and information on the history of farming
in Ellington. As a result, we will be highlighting an Ellington farm each
month on the Ellington Farmers’ Market blog.
Some of the farms we tell you about will have long ago ceased farming and some are still actively farming today. Ellington’s rich agricultural history spans many generations. The first blog is about the Hyde family farm. Joanne Hyde Kummer, the last surviving family member to have grown up on the farm, shares some heart warming memories. I hope you enjoy the blogs.
