Honoring Delmarva Farmers – Johnson Farm
“Farming is your most dangerous occupation,” Eddie Johnson says. Their father, Cecil Johnson died from a farming incident. Eddie says early one morning, his father walked between a bull and two cows that were in heat. The bull didn’t like that Cecil walked between them and took offense to it. Cecil died a few weeks later.
Brian Johnson also had a farming accident where a piece of machinery took one of his finger from his right hand. “I was in too big a hurry,” David said. His hand got stuck in a piece of machinery while he was cleaning it.
“Everything we do, if you do not pay attention, or are in too big a hurry, will either hurt, or kill you,” Brian said.
