Bill Ziegler

We talked to Bill Ziegler.

Born in 1926 and moved to Tipton in 1928. Lifetime farmer and still owns his first tractor.

We talked about farming progress from 1 bottom plows all the way up to 60 foot wide combines.  Pork prices and gardens, the 6 grocery stores in Tipton and two in Hobbs.

He also mentions the fact that the schools refused to take him to St John’s school because he was a Catholic.

Bills parting words were “stay honest and thank the good lord you are here.”

Our goal is to save the words and experience of this generation. Listen, enjoy, and pass it on.

If you know someone that would like to be on our show, give me a call or shoot me an email at doug@heronhomes.com

  1. Thank you for taking the time to put this online for all to hear. Maybe you can talk Virginia Baker into talking about how the politics of Tipton has changed.
