On Feb. 4 this year (the day we brought Emory home from the hospital), Warner Tuttle shows his newborn son, Emory Kenneth Tuttle (who is 3 days old), how to use the Telehandler on the farm in Barto, Pennsylvania.
Mark is a hardworking father and enjoys farming with his children. (This photo was taken on Easter, April 21, 2019 at our home in Carlisle, PA) Pictured is Mark with his 4 children- Mason, Madison, Grant & Cole
Learning to the drive the ol’ farm truck, helmets on please! Summer 1999 in Middletown, Pennsylvania, with Mel, Renee (Gruber), and Jeremy Nissley. To Fathers:"Sometimes having your children help around the farm can get more work done and sometimes less. Now as a parent, I can better see the struggle. Whether it’s when I forgot the well pipe sticking up in the ground and backed the skidloader up over it, getting it stranded, or the day I threw planter parts out for a the trash man! To my credit as a youth, the planter parts were sitting beside the trash barrels in the shop. I collected all the ‘trash’ one evening and set it out. Coming home from school the next day, i learned the headache and frustration I had caused. Those were GOOD planter parts and you went to the incinerator plant that day and dug through the garbage piles from that day’s trucks to find the costly planter parts! You extended grace many times, in the midst of your frustration as a father, recognizing it was accidental on my part. Lessons learned. Thank you Dad!"
