You think farming’s hard now? You should have been there in 1870. Chip Carter found a time machine for a trip to the Georgia Museum of Agricultural on the campus of Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College in Tifton. It’s a 400-acre living history exhibit where they still plow with mules, shear sheep for wool, distill turpentine, grind grain for meal, pound away at the blacksmith’s forge, and make their own lumber with a very scary looking sawmill… which Chip broke. Travel back in time and experience what would have been a typical day for a farmer 150 years ago!
