FC: The Eldredge Century Farm by Dale & Becky Carlson

1: In 1908 Eli Adams Eldredge bought a farm and settled just outside of Holden, Missouri, to raise crops and a family. On May 17, 2011, the Eldredge farm was designated a Century Farm by the state of Missouri. This photographic portfolio commemorates the legacy of the Eldredge Farm.

3: Century Farm The old well stands alone Where a house use to be The beginnings of a heritage home Where a family toiled together Some of them are gone now But memories remain to carry on What all began more than a Century ago Where the old well stands

6: A Classic Oh the dreams that have been dreamed here The cuss words yelled to the rafters The cigarettes sneaked behind its doors The strong smell of hay and manure That permeates every board Never kept a kiss from being stolen Cows were milked, tractors repaired And it was a shelter for all The magic of an old classic barn Still flourishes

9: Everything | You Need | is right | Here

13: Standing Tall She always stood by the side of the road Head held high with pride Those who drove by may not have noticed But it never kept her from the duty of Standing tall for the family farm

21: Fields of Home The image of green fields flanked by trees and ponds Allow summer breezes to blow through my mind The joys of a day filled with hard labor are in my viewfinder A young man's toil grows softer with the years When one is carried back to the fields of home
