Kelford's Peanut Stacks

Before mechanization, peanut vines were stacked in piles, staked, and allowed to dry in the fields. Now, they are snatched out of the ground by machinery, the peanuts separated and the vines chewed up and spit back onto the field. Yes, it's quicker, but is it as loving as pulling,piling and allowing the sun to do the drying?

I love this house. It is very like one of my favorites in Indian Woods, Bertie County. The truck, I know is not salesroom exact. What I wanted you to know is that it is valet parked in the" fronch yard". Yes, it is up on blocks!

It is to pair with the Cotton Pickers. It is 11x14" ...Sold
