Life on a Family Farm
Ramona Snell, who runs Buxton's Snell Family Farm with husband John, is interviewed in today's Maine Sunday Telegram.
We are landed gentry. We work the land of John's family farm. His grandparents bought it in 1926, mainly as a poultry farm. As it was in Maine, the family had a few cows for themselves and some neighbors, a few household vegetables.
They used to ship the eggs to Boston on the train. I was appearing in a school and asked the students if they had been on a train, and many of them had. And then I asked if they had seen any eggs on the train. This whole region sent items to Boston. Scarborough was an agricultural center. [Link]
