Pike celebrates heritage the old fashioned way

Farm Heritage Day took visitors back to a time when every day meant hard work. See photos from the 4th annual event here. Visitors had the chance to turn a field behind strong mules with a strong, old plow. Youngsters could ride miniature ponies, milk goats and pet animals that used to be part of every Pike farm. Horses pulled carriages around Chestnut Oaks, Pike County’s Agribusiness, Education and Community center. The aromas of homemade goodies like peach cobbler cooked by Boy Scouts over an open fire, hot boiled peanuts, tomato sandwiches and cowboy potatoes filled the air as bluegrass musicians played on stage. Antique and unique tractors drew a crowd of interested folks and spurred kids to hop up in the seat for a better view. The event brought together people from all over and took them back to their roots with items and practices from the past.
