Ludger Berube Farm, Caswell

Contributed by Aroostook County Historical and Art Museum


The International Fertilizers promotional photograph was taken at the Ludger Berube farm in Caswell. It noted the farm had a yield of 125 twelve-peck barrels per acre.

In the photo, from left, are Ludger's son Lewis Berube, Ludger's daughter, Meda Berube Deschaine; Meda's husband Herman (Armand) Deschaine; and Ludger, wearing a hat.

Herman Deschaine recalled that they worked all day to find the largest potatoes and then stage the photograph.
