“… I came to this farm over 60 years ago to help my uncle. He had no children of his own. In the end, I inherited it. Forty-five acres of our land was vested in 1966.
This land was designated for parkland so there was no need to [start building] immediately. I stayed on and farmed as best I could, but eventually the land was lost so I had to find other kinds of work. But I still lived here on the rent for 19 years until they decided there was land on the edge they didn’t need so I bought back the house and 18 acres.”
