Planting Cabbage on the Turner Farm
Photographic print in an album. Members of the Turner family work to plant cabbage in a field on their farm in LaFayette, New York. Included in the group are Wesley, Wayne O., Marion and Wayne Turner. They are using a horse-drawn seeding/planting machine. They may also be watering the plants as they are placed in the ground. (See the wooden drum under the seat of the driver.) Handwritten on the back of the photograph is, "Setting Cabbage Plants (Wesley behind, Dad driving, Mom and Wayne setting)/July 1948/Neg 5A." This photograph is part of an album of the Wayne O. and Marion Turner farm which was in operation from 1945-1956 at RD 1, LaFayette, New York. It was first a chicken farm and then a vegetable truck farm. The Turner's sold produce at the Syracuse Regional Market during that time. After the farm stopped operating, the barn was re-modeled into The Syracuse Motel and part of the farm was sold to the Jewish Federation of Syracuse and made into "Camp Fren-Le."
