Included are a barn, a chicken, a cow, a fence, a horse, a lamb, a pig, a sheep and a tractor. Use your imagination and combine them to create a beautiful mural. Use them individually to decorate a piece of furniture or create accent pieces like pillows and throws. These are cut & paint stencils.

These stencils are designed to inspire your creativity!< Less

The farmer should be as familiar with the names of the ten essential elements of plant food as he is with the names of his ten nearest neighbors. Safe and permanent systems of soil improvement and preservation may come with intelligence—never with ignorance—on the part of the landowners.< Less
