Farnam is another small town situated along the HiLine - Highway 23 in south central Nebraska. The population was 171 at the 2010 census, down from the all-time high population of 462 in 1910. It is a typical small town in rural Nebraska. Quiet residential neighborhoods, many with unpaved streets, a closed school, and a few, very few, main street businesses operating in historic buildings dating from a more prosperous time.
Our reason for visiting Farnam was to enjoy the 3 Brothers Vineyard and Winery. A delightful find in a small town. 3 Brothers is located at 812 Lincoln St., in the northwest corner of the community.
Traveling by train to Sutton, Nebraska to meet family, the Wachs soon homesteaded in Hayes County, 50 miles west of 3 Brothers Vineyard location. Later, these three brothers married three sisters from the Schultz family. Hermann married Anna Karolina in 1909. Friedrich married Emilie Elisabetha in 1912. Otto married Johanna Frieda in 1919. Friedrich and Emilie Wach are the grandparents of the vineyard and winery founder, Gary Wach.
