Staff at the Dudley Farm in Newberry Florida came to speak to UF AZ today, March 14, during our regular chapter hours. Brothers were interested in the agricultural methods used to manage the farm because they only use agricultural methods and tools from the time period between 1880-1930. Staff on the farm aim to preserve the historic pioneer lifestyle and the simple, yet effective farming and cooking techniques that our ancestors depended on. The three living history actors and land managers that we had the pleasure to speak with emphasized the importance of history, heritage, and knowing where you come from. Their talk was truly inspiring and we look forward to finding volunteer service opportunities to assist in the management of Dudley Farm and the preservation of agricultural history.
