Lee County's Future Farmers?

Contributed by Ellie Price, Jr.  

The Farmall Cub was introduced that year for the special price of $548.00. I recall our chapter purchased a small disc harrow with the tractor. 

We had a small garden which we plowed with the tractor, a pig chain and chicken chain, and we went on many field trip in Mr. Harris’s car, which he called his “A”. 

It was a Ford A Model coupe with rumble seat in back. Us boys visited many farms learning to prune fruit trees, castrate pigs make Capons out of roosters and other things. 

Those were the good old days when no one even thought about falling out of that little car. 

We learned a lot from this fine young dedicated teacher from Clemson.






This is the FFA class of 1949. Far left, Henry Harris, (teacher) third from left, Bobby Skinner, front row wearing checkered shirt, Ellie Price, Jr. front row with leg on tractor, probably Elijah Stevens, far right with leg on tractor, Charles McLendon. 

This new Farmall Cub was purchased new in 1948 from Laney farm equipment by our FFA chapter. Contributed by Ellie E. Price <<<<<< Click Here for more from Ellie
