Eddie Dail’s Conetoe farm was the site of an old-time farm show Saturday for the fifth year in a row. Dail decided to continue with the show despite heavy rains the previous night and storms in Saturday’s forecast.
“The show must go on,” Eddie Dail said. “The weather held out for me…For the threat of rain, I think we had a good turnout.”
The show’s co-coordinator Bill Jennings, of Elm City, estimated 300 people attended the show.
A.K. Kissell came to Dail Farms all the way from Newark, Del.
“I’m interested in anything old,” Kissell said. “I like to preserve things – antique cars, antique tractors.”
A retired agriculture teacher and farmer, Kissell believes preserving the old farming techniques and equipment is important because it shows today’s generation “where you come from.” To Dail, that’s what the old-time farm show is all about – showing off the way things were done in “the yesteryear.”
