Our Vintage Photo Winner Announced
"A people without knowledge of their past, history, and culture, is like a tree without its roots."
We asked readers of the Tennessee Cattle Business a year ago to send in photos from Tennessee's agricultural past. We received several wonderful images of hard-working men and women from the past century who raised livestock. These photos were featured a few issues of the TCB.
The person who sent us the oldest image won a TCA prize pack.
And the winner is................. Steve Slatten, 5th generation farmer
Howard Farley purchased Post Oak Creek Farm in White County after he returned from the Civil War and got married. The original house is still standing and another home built for his sisters-in-laws is still in use. He and his son, Landen, operated a general store/post office on the banks of Post Oak Creek in what was then known as Newark. The post office closed in 1904. They made saddles and shoes, as well as carrying full lines of merchandise. The farm was often noted for quality horses, mules and cattle.
