American made

Woodside’s Adolph Rosekrans restores farming implements from the days of the horse-drawn plow Story by Dave Boyce photos by Michelle Le

I

t requires a leap of imagination to visualize it now, but there was a time when growing crops commercially in the United States meant entering the domain of draft horses and the iron, steel and hardwood tracery of the American-made farming implements they pulled. Pastures under cultivation felt the heavy tread of nodding, plodding teams of big, muscular animals and the slow churn of the delving metal blades of plows, cultivators and harrows. It was a simpler time. A farmer’s engines of cultivation ran on hay and were more or less selfsteering. The necessary work included turning over the soil, breaking up the big lumps and then planting, weeding and harvesting. There were implements made to do all of these things. They could be simple or complicated, as well as ingenious. Farmers wanted labor-saving devices and American factories were hothouses of innovation. Traveling salesmen would visit farmers and demonstrate a company’s latest products using hand-held scale models. “They were always building a better mousetrap,” Woodside resident, planning commissioner and architect Adolph Rosekrans told the Almanac. Mr. Rosekrans has a collection of about 100 horse-drawn farm implements, a collection that started to come together about 12 years ago with 10 or 12 implements that had been sitting under trees for years at his home at Runnymede Farm on Runnymede Road. “I was fascinated with the tools, the engineering and the levers and the gears,” he says. A substantial part of Mr. Rosekrans’ restored collection goes on display in the San Mateo County History Museum in the exhibit “Plowing Ahead: Historic Peninsula Farming” on Wednesday, March 13. The exhibit at 2200 Broadway St. in Redwood City runs (tentatively)

until September 2014 and will include 16 lithographs of Peninsula farms from around 1878, drawn by Grafton Tyler Brown, an early African-American artist in California. Since 2003, when Mr. Rosekrans transferred ownership of his collection to the museum, it has continued to grow. The Almanac visited with Mr. Rosekrans and his assistant Sam Perry, an Oakland-based sculptor. The tour included the Continued on next page

Continued from previous page

barn/workshop and a long shed that is home to several restored implements and many that are yet-to-be-restored and whose metal parts have weathered to a uniform and benign coat of light-brown rust. (The 120 acres of Runnymede Farm is also a sculpture garden with around 150 outdoor works of art collected and placed by Mr. Rosekrans’ brother John, who died in 2001. The farm opens occasionally to nonprofit groups for fundraising events. Mr. Perry and sculptor Michael Ehrlich also have roles at the farm in maintaining the outdoor sculptures.)

Baling hay As a kid growing up at Runnymede in the 1930s, Mr. Rosekrans says he remembers nomadic farm workers arriving in hay-baling season with children and dogs, a cook wagon, and a horse-driven hay baler. The rectangular bales came out wrapped in five wires, he says. According to an October 1935 edition of The Gettysburg Times, a five-wire bale weighed about 190 pounds. “It was exciting to a little kid,” Mr. Rosekrans says.

His parents bought Runnymede in 1929 or 1930 and photos from that time show rows of grapes. The farm may once have been an eight-cow commercial dairy, he says, having derived that number from the eight milking stalls in the farm’s elegant stone barn. The implement collection got a jump start from Ray Stacy, a retired blacksmith and drafthorse owner in San Mateo County who, Mr. Rosekrans says, encouraged him “and sort of pushed me over the edge” to pull Runnymede’s implements out from under the trees and restore them. Along with his original 10 implements, Woodside resident Elizabeth Flood, of the Flood Estate, at one point asked him to look over what she had in horse-drawn hardware. “Do you want it? Take it,” he says she told him. And so he did. The largest category of implements in his collection is the single-blade walking plow. Auctions are another way to find implements. Mr. Rosekrans says he visits Tulare in the Central Valley a couple of weekends a year. It’s not uncommon to pay $150 for a plow, and he once paid $1,500 for a 1940s-era cultivator — a device used to break up plowed lumps of soil.

A horse-drawn mowing blade, steel wheels, and many, many plows decorate the afternoon in a shed at Runnymede Farm in Woodside.

Adolph Rosekrans, left, and Sam Perry page through periodicals in the workshop at Runnymede Farm, where they restore implements from the era of horse-drawn farming.

A $1,500 cultivator may even have its original paint, but if it doesn’t, one way of discovering it is to loosen old bolts and look underneath, Mr. Perry says. Farming implements being worked on at Runnymede sit in various stages of restoration in the workshop in the upper level of the barn. With some of the objects, it is not obvious what they’re used for. Mr. Perry picked up a device whose main feature is a vertically oriented circular case of cast iron about the diameter of a pancake. Like a pencil sharpener, it mounts to a flat surface and includes a hand crank. There’s a pancakesized wheel inside the cast-iron case with four or five fingersized holes around the perimeter, and visible gears inside those holes. The holes accept strands of fiber that, when the crank is turned, join to become the braid of a rope.

Plowshares into swords American companies were once major exporters of horsedrawn implements, Mr. Perry says. Even after the transition to farming with tractors in the 1920s and 1930s in Europe and the United States, South American farms remained reliable customers. And after mechanization, the implement manufacturers’ export market remained strong in that they adapted their implements so they could be pulled behind tractors. World War II slowed mechanized farming briefly as manufacturers shifted to making war machines, and some of the metal used in those war machines came from melted-down horsedrawn implements. But horse farming is making a comeback. “There’s a lot of horse farmers,” Mr. Perry says. “It’s not going to feed the world, but it’ll make ‘em feel

good, like farmers’ markets,” Mr. Rosecrans adds with a smile. What’s it like, walking behind a horse-drawn plow? “That’s hard work,” and particularly hard on hips and knees, Mr. Rosekrans says. “It’s really how well your horse is trained,” Mr. Perry says. “The worst thing that could happen,” he adds, “is the horses would hit a hornets nest.” But he says there’s a technique to step out of the reins if that happens. The farmer should make a habit of tying the reins together and wrapping the whole thing loosely around the shoulders so that if the horse spooks, the farmer can duck down and let the reins slip off.

LAWYER. 140 FARM ROAD, WOODSIDE, CA 94062 “(If a street address or common designation of property is shown above, no warranty is given as to its completeness or correctness).” Said Sale of property will be made in “as is” condition without covenant or warranty, express or implied, regarding title possession, or encumbrances, to pay the remaining principal sum of the note(s) secured by said Deed of Trust, with interest as in said note provided, advances, if any, under the terms of said Deed of Trust, fees, charges and expenses of the Trustee and of the trusts created by said Deed of Trust. Said sale will be held on: MARCH 20, 2013, AT 12:30 P.M. *AT THE MARSHALL STREET ENTRANCE TO THE HALL OF JUSTICE AND RECORDS 400 COUNTY CENTER REDWOOD CITY, CA 94063 At the time of the initial publication of this notice, the total amount of the unpaid balance of the obligation secured by the above described Deed of Trust and estimated costs, expenses, and advances is $2,402,790.47. It is possible that at the time of sale the opening bid may be less than the total indebtedness due. NOTICE TO POTENTIAL BIDDERS: If you are considering bidding on this property lien, you should understand that there are risks involved in bidding at a trustee auction. You will be bidding on a lien, not on the property itself. Placing the highest bid at a trustee auction does not automatically entitle you to free and clear ownership of the property. You should also be aware that the lien being auctioned off may be a junior lien. If you are the highest bidder at the auction, you are or may be responsible for paying off all liens senior to the lien being auctioned off, before you can receive clear title to the property. You are encouraged to investigate the existence, priority, and size of outstanding liens that may exist on this property by contacting the county recorder’s office or a title insurance company, either of which may charge you a fee for this information. If you consult either of these resources, you should be aware that the same lender may hold more than one mortgage or deed of trust on the property. NOTICE TO PROPERTY OWNER: The sale date shown on this notice of sale may be postponed one or more times by the mortgagee, beneficiary, trustee, or a court, pursuant to Section 2924g of the California Civil Code. The law requires that information about trustee sale postponements be made available to you and to the public, as a courtesy to those not present at the sale. If you wish to learn whether your sale date has been postponed, and, if applicable, the rescheduled time and date for the sale of this property, you may call (714) 480-5690 or (800) 843-0260 ext 5690 or visit this Internet Web site: http:// www.tacforeclosures.com/sales, using the file number assigned to this case V538986 V. Information about postponements that are very short in duration or that occur close in time to the scheduled sale may not immediately be reflected in the telephone information or on the Internet Web site. The best way to verify postponement information is to attend the scheduled sale. If the Trustee is unable to convey title for any reason, the successful bidder’s sole and exclusive remedy shall be the return of monies paid to the Trustee and the successful bidder shall have no further recourse. If the sale is set aside for any reason, the Purchaser at the sale shall be entitled only to a return of the monies paid. The Purchaser shall have no further recourse against the Mortgagor, the Mortgagee or the Mortgagee’s attorney. Date: February 19, 2013 T.D. SERVICE COMPANY as said Trustee, T.D.
