There is no need to farm anymore lol
BTW , if your into organic ....... your not selling me pal
I'm into organic, grown for my own family's consumption. The petting zoo hayride 'farm' sounds good 'cept for one thing: I moved out to the country for the privacy and freedom, not to have a buncha dam city-slickers traumatizing my chickens and goats, and scaring away my deer.

Lmao. They are kicked out of the room right now because I want the room to warm up so I shut the door. Something about damp cold that makes me freeze.

I think Ford only built one decent truck, you were just lucky enough to end up with it.

It was definitely luck. The 2.9 Cologne was considered one of the worst engines Ford ever used.

The older f150s are pretty good trucks. They are easy to work on, and are hard to kill.

I liked my '65 the best. 300 straight six, three on the tree, top speed: 55-57mph down a looooooooooooooooooooooooooooong hill. But, the low end torque was beautiful. It was like driving a fast tractor. I kept a gallon jug of brake fluid behind the seat at all times, and topped it off every time I stopped somewhere for even just a few minutes. Kept a huge ass rock in the bed in case I had to park on a hill.
And...it...would...not...die...
