Shelby County near the Oldham County line, beside KY 1408. February 6, 2005. 2:42 p.m. EST.
farmer who put up these signs to sell hogs and corn also has for sale the
pickup truck in the background (for $400), and wants to sell or lease temporary
chain-link fencing panels (a sample can be seen at upper right). In
addition, an old delivery van, just out of the frame to the left of this
photo, is for sale with a price of $1,800.
So, it seems, here is an enterprising farmer who's not shy about doing some on-site retailing. But there may be more to the story than just that. This farm is one of few remaining in an area, just about 20 miles northeast of Louisville, that is rapidly becoming suburban. In fact, this particular farm is almost completely surrounded by new residential developments of houses in the $250,000-$500,000 range.
