Here are some of the exhibits on display in the farm shed: Farm Hand Tools – From sickle sharpener to rope maker and all the hand tools in-between, farmers were self sufficient. In the shed one could repair equipment, maintain buildings, store fire fighting gear – the tool shed had the supplies one would need on the farm. Empty nail kegs served as seats for visitors. However, not a power tool in sight! Display of horse tack and other draft animal apparatus. Rural Electrification – Pittsville was electrified in 1924. Electricity didn’t come to the countryside until after the creation of electric cooperatives after WWII. Examples of electrical insulators & other equipment used in the delivery of electricity to farms and homes are displayed. Large Feed Mill Pulley – The large wooden pulley, built by Bernia Tyjeski’s granddad and Lee Schalla, once turned machinery to mill grain for animal feed. It was used in the old feed mill which was located beside the river near the intersection of County E and First Avenue in Pittsville. The smaller cast iron pulley on the floor to the right, which was attached to a motor, powered the wide belt that turned the large wooden pulley, which in turn powered the milling machinery. Display of a collection of model steam tractors. Dairying & Other Farm Industries exhibit, including milking, milk testing, cheesemaking, honey production, maple syrup, egg laying and butter making production tools and equipment. Variety of crop planters, harvesters, cultivators, and other garden hand tools. Fur Foods – This meat grinder from Pittsville Fur Foods was used to process animal parts into food for minks, which was delivered to mink farms throughout the upper Midwest. Mink pelt stretchers hang on the wall to the right. Dr. Gaylord Hartsough, world-renowned mink expert and local resident, was actively involved in the business.
