1883 D.M. Ferry catalog


In their 1883 catalog, D. M. Ferry devoted 12 pages to descriptions and illustrations of the seed business-from soil treatments to plantings to harvest, seed cleaning, packaging and shipping. Here their labor force of German immigrant women can be seen at work (and on break) in the fields.
