Located on the Ford Farm on Fields Pond Road, Orrington this circa 1905 manure spreader was parked in a pasture some 40 years ago. The pasture has turned to woods, and the manure spreader has sustained considerable deterioration from the elements. Although most of the wood to this horse drawn implement ( that still had a eight foot tongue as well as eveners to its one-time whiffle tree) is long gone, it seemingly has all its metal hardware for the purpose of future restoration. The plan is to disassemble the metal parts and sandblast them. New oak or ash will then be cut and fitted to size. The vintage and rarity of this farm implement makes it a worthy candidate for such an undertaking. Volunteers are needed for this restoration.
