In the winter of 1944 a young farmer named John Fallow stopped by Robertson’s General Store to deliver a crate of eggs and fill a jar of molasses.

Blanche Campbell, the girl who served him, remembers the day she first laid eyes on the man she’d marry five years later. He was 22 and had been running the Fallow family farm near New Richmond since he was 16.

Blanche had a lifelong fear of animals, which she quickly learned to overcome.

"It took me a while to get used to the cows. And the horses, I was always petrified of the horses."

After they wed John went to work at Dimmick’s Garage and later had other jobs that took him away from the farm most days.


Blanche was in charge of the chores, housework, cooking and child-rearing; John tended the fields. They never had a lot of money, but their life was rich in countless other ways.

They farmed together for 61 years.
