A visit to Harlowton MT with Abe & Ida Wipf of Spring Water Colony
These show the Church, eating area, some preserved vegetables and chickens in the walk-in freezes.
Here they make
their own soap and have wonderful laundry facilities.
Abe is head of the Poultry production. Thousands of eggs produced daily from over 12,000 chickens.
Rows of Condo-Type
structures are the residence.
Here is the Trout pond stocked with over 3,000 huge trout.
Abe is an excellent fisherman
and really enjoys the pond. This pond was Abe's idea
This time of year the bait of choice was grasshoppers so Kurt and Abe caught a few of them in the fields by the pond.
These HUGE fish measured in at over 20".
It was a good day!
We cooked some of
the fish on the grill and smoked some others that we had caught on
