The Granary and Shed
The granary was used to store grain to feed farm animals. The grain was stored on the second floor in bins and farmers used the chutes on the first floor to put grain into buckets to feed to animals.This granary has five chutes, one in each of the four "rooms" and one in the entry way.Our granary is not original to Schumacher Farm, but it is from the same time period. It came from the Vincent Lacy farm south of Madison on Lacy Road. It arrived in 1999 and was restored on site.
