B. Armitage did not want to give Hat Rack a bad name

Barbara Armitage writes
With all this talk about Hat Racking trees I'm afraid that we are giving the hardworking American Hat Rack a bad name. I purchased this one years ago at an auction in Lexington and it has served me well sometimes supporting a dozen or more ball caps at once. However, if this hat rack reminds you of the trees in your yard then you have a problem.

Sorry I don't have any photos of Hat Racked trees. I have wanted to take some photos of trees that have been brutally trimmed but since I feel that I should be honest and tell the owners that the photo is an example of what NOT to do -I just haven't had the nerve to ask permission to use the photo. I'd like to add it to a "How to Prune" class (in the NO-NO section). Maybe I could title the photo "Chain Saw Massacre," "I think that one's already been taken. -Barbara Armitage

The only Hat Rack at Tuckers Station

2011-07-10 - 1535 Bull Run RD, Columbia, KY - Photo by Barbara Armitage.
The only Hat Rack you'll find at Tucker's Station Farms holds the only hat you'll ever need at a John Deere ball cap. That's of course when I'm not wearing it. - Barbara Armitage
