The morning stop on Tueday, June 24, 2014 was Tyden Farm No. 6 located just outside of Dougherty, IA.  Tyden Farm No. 6 is on the National Historic Registry and is available for tours in the summer and fall season. Ted and Judy Pitizenberger owners of Tyden Farms welcomed the 400 plus tractor riders with cookies, doughnuts, and large smiles. The riders and the WHO staff were impressed with the small town hospitality they received at their morning stop. Ted was told several times that this stop was the best stop they had ever been at.  Ted and Judy said, “We couldn’t have done this without our family’s support, the volunteers, and the all of the sponsors and we are so thankful for everything that was donated along with their time.”


After the riders left Tyden Farm No. 6 they went through the small town of Dougherty where even they were in the welcoming spirit and had the American flag out on all of the utility poles along the route on the way to Sheffield. Ted and Judy would like to thank the following sponsors Phelps Imp. in Greene, First Citizens Bank in Mason City, Mason City All Risk Ins., Flint Hills Resources in Shell Rock, Michael Marlow with Dekalb, Hertz Farm Mgmt, and Latham Seed in Alexander.  Tours for the public are scheduled to be held on July 19-20, 2014 for more information on the tours please call 641-426-5277.  For more information on the historic Tyden Farm No. 6 visit,
