Time May Change

In the 1980’s an economic disaster now known as “The Farm Crisis” swept across the Midwest. Small family farms could not compete with large-scale industrial farming and farmers everywhere were forced to abandon their way of life. Now all that remains of those family farms are the abandoned farmhouses that stand like gravestones on the corners of large-scale farms across the Midwest.
