Coming down

Lawrence Yeaton of Farmington drove the tractor at left Monday to pull down one of the two leaning silos at his farm on Whittier Road. The picture was taken seconds before the one in the foreground collapsed. Both silos were emptied this year with a plan to take down the one Monday and possibly fix the remaining one. The Yeatons had milked cows for 51 years before stopping this year.

So sad to see this once

So sad to see this once profitable farm fall into such disrepair. I know its no fault of the Yeatons, farming is a hard life.
