Abandoned Places – Farmed Out

Peach picking at an orchard in Utica, Ohio was done and it was time to head home with our bountiful harvest but instead of heading straight home we decided to take what eventually became several side roads to get back to the highway towards home.

It was on one of those twists and turns that we found this farm partially hidden behind many trees, shrubs and general overgrowth.  Approaching cautiously it seemed as though it truly was abandoned and ‘safe’ for me to get out and start taking photos.

The bigger main house, the barn and a smaller barn or shed behind it – all overgrown yet still standing very well.  There was a bit of a pathway which looked as if there had been some traffic coming through (you can just see the one bare track in the first photo) made me wonder just how much and how long abandoned this property was.

In the front of the property there was a smaller house with a shed and this great old John Deere tractor waiting to be oiled and gassed up to mow the tall grass and weeds.  Sometimes taking the long way home can lead to great discoveries and adventures.
