Farm Signs

    During last year’s Farm Beautiful contest we received a wide variety of farm signs proudly displaying the farm’s name and owners. Circle A Farms, owned by Scott and Kay Ault, has a unique antler arch, symbolic of the 130 elk herd that lived on the farm from the 1970s to 2010. Today the Ault’s raise a herd of 155 cattle.

    This sign greets visitors on Marsha Ralston-Edlinger’s farm. After the death of her husband Jim Ralston, Marsha was remarried to Michael Edlinger. Marsha’s son Jeff and his family also live on the farm. The family runs a cow-calf operation and raises corn, soybeans, hay, wheat, and oats.

    Gerald and Darlene McMath farm in Shade Gap, Pennsylvania. The couple used to have dairy cows but now grow soybeans, corn, and wheat. “We don’t have cows anymore, but we love the stone,” says Darlene about the carved stone at the left. “We will always display it.”
