Hommelhoff 370767 138 the story of our farm either
the story of our farm
this shows our farm.

The first picture, is from 1957, and taken from north-east. On that picture the farm looks like when my granpa bought it in 1953.

On the next picture from 1959 big changes have happened. There is built a big barn and a new stable. unfortunately you can't see here, that the Ferguson tractor looks out of the barn

The next picture is from 1972, and taken from south-west, and there nearly arent any changes to see. on that time the farm still is run with just one ferguson tractor.

The next pic is from 1992, and taken from north-west. Again there have been no changes to the buildings, but to the machines on the farm, because now there is also a Ford 5000 on the farm, an own Combine.

to be continued............

Re: the story of our farm
...........then this happened on the 3. of december 1999, caused by a hurricane! The old stable, and the barn were destroyed. But at all there didn't happen anything to our animals or machines. this is of course not how it looked just after the hurricane, but this is the rest of it was knocked down! It took a long time before we found out what to do, and some of our machines had to stand outside for some years.

Re: the story of our farm
I can tell that the farm mainly was a dairy farm, but the new stable from 58 was made for chickens, later it was converted for pigs. then it was changed into a calf stable, so that the hole or the old stable could be used for cows. Later, in the 80's I think it was changed into a sheep stable.

I can also tell that the farm was buit in 1927, but my granpa bought it, as I said 1953. The same year he also bought his first Tractor. a Ferguson tea 20, the most usual tractor in denmark ( there are sold about 35000 in denmark i think).
It was bougt in a set with tractor, plow, cultivator and transport box, for 12000kr.
With that tractor he also drove out for other farmers, for spraying their fields.
That was the only tractor on the farm until the late 70's, where a ford 5000 was bought.
The first combine was bought about 1990, aclaas matador Standard.


After the hurricane 1999, it was a great shock for us opening the door, and seeing the whole roof construction lying in the yard. It took over a year till we got the walls knocked down. That actually happened on my mothers birthday, nice present.

We decided to make a whole new barn, a whole new place, because that could give a lot more space.

This were a few more informations, you can just ask if there is more you want to know.

Re: the story of our farm
It is exactly 11,3 ha. so it is not a very big farm. maybe not bad for your standards, but very small for danish standards, but we do some contract work for other farms, mainly in the neighbourhood.
in means of animals, we only have two sheep, a dog and a cat.
we can not live of this in any way, but we are able to make a +

Re: the story of our farm
well, thats up to many things theres one farmer here, he has 10 ha and 12 cows, but he does not owe anything to the bank, and has no wife or children.

but usually a full time farmer would have at least 60 ha. not the less, there are many farms these days with 200 ha. and and also with 300, and even 600 and bigger. the biggest farm in dk has 3200 ha.

I like it better the ''small'' way. 100 ha, and I would be statisfied.

Re: the story of our farm
Nice Story Christoph. It must been traumatized when Hurricane hit.

In here Finland if you want a be full time farmer you have to have more than 100 hectares field and it would be good if you have forest becuse it is good too to have job in winter time.

Re: the story of our farm
100 hectares of arable land only would not be enough here either, but if you have a stable full of cows or pigs, it is possible.
one of the big thigs is how much you owe to the bank. if you dont have to pay off on anything, the whole thing gets much easier.
