    I remember some of these times, when I visited my grandpa Willis, he had 1 tractor, but he would use his team…Dick and Charcoal. You know Jodi Mann? then you probably know my father…..Chet Mann, from Int’l Falls. He was very active with his draft team, during the summer and winter activities. He also raised many draft horses, and trained them.

    I knew Chet very well. I bought Patty from him. He was a great “old timer ” friend.

    I was wondering if you stayed home at the farm for this last snow storm?

    I love this story Ed, what a wonderful childhood you had. I would definitely bring my class out to the farm. I feel that children can learn so much from an experience like this.

    My three girls and I made a last minute decision to try Mr. Eds farm, I cannot even describe how wonderful this experience was!!! Mr Ed and Duane were so friendly and caring individuals, they cut potatoes, shaved corn, went for a horse ride, fed the animals etc!!! being 30 myself, I don’t know who enjoyed this experience more. being from a parents perspective or a child’s! All of the animals, neat buildings! i really hope anyone looking at this website, not from the area, this is worth the trip! God has seriously blessed Mr Ed!!! I cannot wait to go back!
