Replacing Fence Posts at the Farm

A big fence project continues at my Bedford, New York farm.

So many of you have commented on how much you love the 100-year-old white spruce fencing that surrounds my pastures. I purchased all the antique railings from Canada, and when the fences were built here, we used new cedar uprights to support them. They've held up so well, but after 15 years some of the posts are now deteriorated and need replacing. It's a tedious process and has to be done by hand so as not to disturb or damage the antique wood, but Pete from my outdoor grounds crew is doing an excellent job.

Here are some photos, enjoy.
