The cold weather does not stop a true farmer. The first of nip of the fall was in the air but plowing teams still came to Deal Farms Saturday morning, October 1, for an all-day event of plowing the ground. There is certainly plenty of land to be plowed. There was only a small section at the end of the field that the farmers were plowing, using old fashioned plows and teams of horses and mules. Elsewhere on the farm, more modern plows were being used.
There was no contest involved in the teams plowing, although there have been in the past and other farms that hold similar events will have contests for the best teams.
