Windmill Acres Farm SHOW REPORT


| November/December 1988

D-16 South Bost Avenue Newton, North Carolina 28658

Most of the adults were still asleep Saturday morning as the three boys quietly made their way out to the banks of the fishing lake. Slowly the sun began to cast long shadows across the lake and the boys seemed to be in a world of their own.

Click, click, pop, click, click, pop the little engine echoed as sleepy-eyed exhibitors crawled from the back of pickup trucks, pup tents and air conditioned campers.

Soon the whole valley was alive as little engine after little engine began to sing its own metallic tune. Smoke filled the air and exhibitors greeted each other with enthusiasm as they began a day that would last late into the night.

Some had come from as far away as Ohio, Kentucky, Florida, Texas and New York to participate in one of the most unique early farm day celebrations anywhere. Before the day was through, exhibitors and visitors alike would get to see more than 100 years of life on the farm unfold before their eyes.

Those are the sights and sounds Big Edd and Velma Sigmon and their family wait to hear each Father's Day weekend in June when they host Early Farm Days at their Windmill Acres farm in Newton, North Carolina.
