Tending the small Farmer Cemetery is a family commitment

FARMER  — Driving through the expanse of green wheat fields, on a small knoll in the distance, granite and marble tombstones emerge — seemingly from out of nowhere — barely seen from a mile away. It’s the Farmer Cemetery where homestead families are buried on a quarter acre plot of brown, cracked soil.

Also known as the Happy Home Cemetery, the spot is 14 miles out of Waterville, one mile north of the old Farmer grange hall along Highway 172. A metal gate, chained shut, stands alone at the entrance.
