When those lines were built across our farm, the power company paid us rent for use of the right-of-way. LikeLiked by 1 person Reply Good question but I know that sometimes the power companies kind of do what they want including taking peoples property. If the farmers were using electricity it would probably be free. LikeLike Reply The way I remember it was we could accept their non-negotiable offer, or face Eminent Domain. The State was prepared to simply take the land. It was the old cliche, “They made us an offer we couldn’t refuse”.

With the Amish I guess they make a deal of wake up with their horses head in their bed! 🐴 LikeLike Love it!
