This short book, a family farm history, is about my cousin Alvin, his family and their farm at Island Grove. They have farmed this land for four generations. Alvin, now retired, farmed for 60 years. He’ll be the last of the family to work the farm. He tells me how his father, grandfather, and great grandfather worked the land and built up the farm across many seasons.
It’s a story of family, faith and nature | An Illinois Farmer, a history of the Mammoser family farm at Island Grove, Illinois (read on-line book)
Earlier I wrote an essay Island Grove Afternoon, published in Illinois Issues.
