The Douglas family farm, with its bales of hay stacked high in the barn and cattle roaming the property, stands out as something of an anomaly in a quickly changing Galveston County.

This story brings back such wonderful memories. I grew up in Hill County and my family farmed. I earned the money for my first two years at Baylor raising the rejected twin calves and lambs from our neighbors herds. During the fifties, we did not realize that multis were an oddity.
