We’re hoping to keep adding to this page as we find more treasures, but thought we’d whet your appetite with this picture of Andy as a little guy.
Standing in front of the first swamp buggy ever built, these 4 foot tires were pretty big to most people, but seemed huge to Andy, as a little boy, visiting his Grandpa Sisk’s farm in Halsey, Oregon in the early 60’s. The edges are blackened, not for effect, but as a result of a family house fire. We have a few pictures below and some more cool old pix coming soon, so check back.
Edgar Sisk, Andy’s maternal grandpa, raised grass seed on the property we now farm. Seen here (right) with his son, Andy’s Uncle Ivan. This A-6 Case combine is being pulled by a John Deere ‘G’, combining annual ryegrass in mid 40’s.
The A-6 Case Combine pulled by the John Deere Model ‘G’ tractor. Grandpa Sisk is on the tractor and Uncle Ivan is sewing the sacks closed after they’re filled with seed on the machine, in the mid 40’s.
