Don and Jeanette's family had owned a 160 acre farm in the Kickapoo River Valley up until the late sixties. The farm got its first tractor in 1928 but still used horses for some things. They raised tobacco, chickens, pigs, milked cows by hand, and thrashed hay. They eventually traded milk cows for Angus beef. They say that farming was really a community effort at the time. If you needed a barn put up you called your neighbors and they would come and help you put up a farm. Hay thrashing was done by everyone going from farm to farm until it was all done. They describe the life as tough but good. Their family did mostly subsistence farming, selling only eggs, milk and strawberries to buy flour, sugar and salt. They slaughtered their own animals and cured and canned the meat themselves. They cut their own ice in the winter, put it in the icehouse and packed it in sawdust which kept it cool enough to be used all year. They describe Rockton, a timber community that was really thriving in the twenties and thirties but then died. They also speak a lot on land and habitat management and how much help the UW extension program was. Things they learned through UW extension and 4-H made it into their family's farming practices, like strip and contour farming to prevent erosion and paying attention to soil composition. There is still a lot of anger about the government buying out all the farms for the Valley Project and then not completing it. They remember trout fishing being really good in the thirties and Don thinks that the variety of animals has gone down, some species being replaced by others. They never used sprays; they used animal manure for fertilizer, sometimes added lime to the soil, and pulled weeds themselves. Jeanette said, "We was the herbicides. We went down with the hoe and cut the thistles and the nettles and the ... I told my kids you never used the word bored when you lived on the farm because there was always something to do."
