The mustard field, sunflowers, and big trees will be missed.

I will miss it too. Are they building a hill or is that a temporary dirt mound? It looks like they are making a hill on the new roadway, but why would they do that? Seems odd.

Thank you for posting the beautiful photos. It was like a piece of land caught in a time warp. Like the farm where Marty McFly first landed after flux-capacitating out of the mall parking lot. I am glad I got to visit it and enjoy a few seasons of the pumpkin patch, train ride, produce stand, Christmas trees, and all the blooming sunflowers, mustard flowers and corn fields. I miss the windmill too.
