Corn cribs at Fosterfields Living Historical Farm, Morristown, New Jersey

Fosterfields Living Historical Farm 

 

Fosterfields, located in  Morristown, New Jersey, is a beautiful place to visit. 

 

Yesterday I explained the history of Fosterfields. Here are a few more photos.
 

In first photo above are corn cribs, used for storing and drying field corn, which is eventually fed to the animals.

 

The next two photos are cornfields.

The first photo below shows the ensilage pits

 

Ensilage is livestock feed made by chopping green corn stalks and storing them in an almost airtight environment.
