Meet our Members

Welcome to our Members Spotlight!

This is where you will be able to "meet" the members we have at The Blackberry Farm. They will be sharing many different things like how long they've been a member, what they do, or what their favorite part of the show or memory is.

Hi! I'm Bruce Gould

I have been a member for 20 - 25 years. It's been so long that I can't remember the exact number!

I originally started out by collecting toy tractors before I found out that the real tractors were cheaper! As a matter of fact, I bought an Allis Chalmers G from a club member in the beginning, and I still have it to this day.

During the show you will most likely find me in the announcer's booth, but I will also help out in a lot of different areas around the grounds. You will always be able to tell it's me from all the orange! 

I originally joined the club because I love tractors and preserving the past, but it's really all the people! There are so many talented and helpful people out there. I still love tractors, but now with so many other pieces of history around the grounds, you don't need to be a tractor guy to enjoy the show.

A dream of mine is to get the younger generation interested in preserving the past. So come on out and learn something new! We are a welcoming bunch and would love to share what we do with you!

Hi! I'm Jenna Madoll

I have been a member of the club for my entire life. From running around just being a kid, to helping Mom in the Kitchen, working with Dad in the Barn with our horses, and now helping run the social media for the club. 

Part of what I do at The Blackberry Farm is give field demonstrations using Draft Horses. If you came to the show in 2021, there's a good chance you got a wagon ride with me!

 

There are so many amazing aspects to The Blackberry Farm, that it is impossible to pick a favorite. Although, I do really enjoy getting to hear all the different stories from back in the day from all these different people. I learn something new every year!
