172 year old family farm owner works to stop cell tower proposed across the road.

NASHVILLE, Ill. — The owner of a popular petting zoo is fighting a proposal that would put a cell phone tower roughly 350 feet tall next to his family farm.

If you head west on Route 15 out of Nashville, Illinois, you’ll find one of the country’s oldest working farms.

“The farm has been here 172 years,” said Alan Blumhorst. “A couple of years back we were designated the 83rd oldest family-owned business in the nation.”
