The Y Worry Farm will be giving families a taste of farm living today as the Department of Agriculture will offer a free Agriculture Education Day to share information about the importance of farm life to the American economy and to the American way of life. The programs starts at 11:00 a.m. on the farm in 1501 Rossback Road in Davidsonville, Maryland.
The directions to the Y Worry Farm are easy because the farm is visible from Route 50 at the Crofton/Davidsonville exit. It is ideally located between Washington and Baltimore. There will be a number of events taking place today that include the program sponsored by the Department of Agriculture as well as the beautiful Pumpkin Patch with the famous red wagons to carry the pumpkins that have been a part of the Halloween celebration in America.
The owners of the Y Worry Farm are amazing examples of a small business that has driven the American economy for centuries. They work the land, breed the farm animals, and harvest the crops that put food on the table like farms across the nation. Jack Scible will celebrate 60 years of owning a small business that enabled him to raise a family and to help feed a community. “My father loved the city. He loved the bright lights. I loved the country. I loved the farm,” Scible said. He passed his love for the farm to his sons.
Still standing on the family farm that he worked with his sons, Mark and David and their families, Jack Scible is a man who has a no nonsense approach to the farm and country that he loves. Spending a day on the farm with Jack Scible is a lesson in what made America the greatest nation on the face of the earth. “This country was built by farming. A respect for the land means to take care of what we were given. My mother wanted me to go to school in the city. She thought city schools were better than country schools. But I always loved the country,” Scible said.
The quality of being honest, down to earth, and real is something that comes from being around a man who speaks in a way that leaves no confusion about what he loves. Jack loved his wife and speaks of her in a beautiful way for the many years of joy they shared on the Y Worry Farm. “She was a great woman,” Jack says as he remembered her. He pointed to a place where she would look out over the farm and just in that gesture, there was so much love and caring, that when the reporter looked to the spot if was as if she was still there looking out over the farm and at the man she loved.
In a world full of scam artists, con artists, liars, and cheaters, listening to a man talk about a woman that he loved and actually seeing a tear in her memory is a very memorable and touching moment. The Y Worry Farm is blessed in that way. It is a farm that was built with love, hard work, and yes, family.
