The View From Here - Various thoughts and travels
On another blog they were talking about tractors (well it was actually a pretty girl in front of a really big tractor). The talk went to the size of the tractor and that brought out someone who talked about the huge tracts (25,000 acre, that's almost 40 square miles!) they farm in Alberta & Saskatchewan. I guess when you combine a lot of smaller family farms to make a huge one you end up with a lot of abandoned places... houses, churches, schools
There are some really big farms. I know of one that is 42,000 acres in Alberta. There are also a lot of large Hutterite farms.
Interesting perspective to show the back of the building. So sad that someone(s) wouldn't preserve it with a coat of paint.
Nice country church!
