PEDEN FARM
CHILDREN'S FARM FESTIVAL 2018 -
Sept 27th & 28th
Richard and Rachel Peden moved to what is now known as the Peden Farm in January, 1941. Son, Joe, was two and daughter, Carol, arrived a few years later.
 
       In the 1953 the Monroe County Extension Agent asked the Pedens if they would let some students visit the farm.  This became an annual tradition.  In 1975, Rachel Peden passed away and Dick then continued hosting school kids on the farm tours.

  In 1994, when Richard “Dick” Peden died Joe and his wife, Joyce, hosted the farm days.  Since the scheduled event occurred just after Richard’s funeral many volunteers pitched in to help get ready and have the Peden Farm Festival.
