The way grandpa used to farm

I took this picture in southern Mexico and thought of my grandfather who settled on a farm southwest of Elkton. When he first started farming in the Elkton area, he farmed with horses and did most everything the hard way from sunup to sundown. Here in Oaxaca, Mexico many farmers still farm this way using some of the same methods. This farmer is using oxen.

Thanks from an EHS grad!
