Wing farmhouse photograph
Description: This photograph is part of a series of photographs taken by the Ohio Department of Agriculture documenting farms in Ohio. This photograph shows the Wing farm family home owned by Joseph Wing near Mechanicsburg, Ohio. Wing was an internationally-known farmer who traveled domestically and internationally to teach farming practices. He was known by some as the "alfalfa king" because he brought the crop east of the Mississippi River for the first time, and was highly regarded for his sheep farming methods. The representative from the Ohio Department of Agriculture estimated that Wing had twelve to fifteen acres of alfalfa. View on Ohio Memory.
