Hunter Russell

I wonder what Mr. Russell would think of this Midhurst Secondary Plan?

Hunter Russell

H. D. Russell, son of James Russell and Sarah Craig, has lived on the 3rd line of Vespra all his life. Hunter is a farmer at heart but his interests are many. In farming he was one of the first promoters of Simcoe County Federation of Agriculture and served as President. Hunter worked with Stewart L. Page on agricultural experiments, as example, using plots of ground with sulphur to prevent potato scabs. He was involved in other experiments to improve grain seed. Farm implements were also improved often on his suggestions.

We’ll be hearing more about Hunter Russell.
