The historic barn was a testing ground for innovative farm equipment

FORT ATKINSON – Rounding the sweeping curve on Highway 106 a mile southwest of Fort Atkinson, it’s hard to miss. There, on the banks of the Rock River, stands the iconic yellow barn, still steeped in history and serving as a testing ground for innovative farm equipment.

The Jones family of Fort Atkinson, owners of the 133-year-old Jones Dairy Farm sausage and meat processing business, invited the public to tour the 100-year-old historic yellow barn located on the farm.

Local attendees welcomed the opportunity to tour the historic farm, which operated as a dairy farm until the mid-1980s. Located next to a wooded area, the farm is not easily seen from Highway 26 and the farm has 1.4 miles of river frontage and 174 acres of farmland.
