Authentic Pumpkin Patch?

Authentic Pumpkin Patch?

Still an Authentic pumpkin patch Imagine your family hopping up on a horse drawn wagon on a crisp autumn day. The leaves have just begun to change, and the view of the hills goes on for miles. There is an atmosphere of authenticity in the air. The family who is hosting this hayride lives on […]

Fall Cousin Fun

Fall Cousin Fun

Sometimes you need a few extra farm hands! Who you gonna call? Cousins! Renata and her three kiddos came out this October to help us prepare for our fall farm event by moving pumpkins and gourds to the right place. It ended up being a fun day for everyone and we got the job done, […]

Kentucky State Fair 2016

Kentucky State Fair 2016

Every year Nana and Opa take us to the Kentucky State Fair. It’s loud, garish, crowded, smelly, and an assault on the senses that is in stark contrast to our peaceful, quiet, and isolated farm. But, we enjoy it so much! In fact, that may be one of the reasons why it’s such a blast. […]

MOLLUKAH XXXVI!

MOLLUKAH XXXVI!

A beautiful Mollukah celebration commenced again this year! The food was delicious as always (I love me a pitch-in!), the fellowship delightful. It was not too hot and sticky, and the cake was scrumptious! (Nana does it best!) The most special part of the evening came when Joanie and Sonny shared a song they’d written […]

My awesome girls

My awesome girls

Sometimes my girls let me take portraits of them. Sometimes they let me braid their hair. I love it when these two things overlap!  

December... shorts or winter coat?

December… shorts or winter coat?

On Christmas Eve this year, Maggie went fishing barefoot and in shorts. She caught something, too! We really couldn’t believe the weather. It didn’t quite feel like Christmas- it definitely wasn’t white! We had a nice and relatively laid back Christmas.  About a week later, our niece and nephew came over for a farm sleepover. […]

A very full, happy day...

A very full, happy day…

I feel sure this day must have had more than 24 hours in it. We packed so much in, every last moment was filled to brimming! We have been on the lookout for a new Haflinger horse to work alongside Holly, and eventually her son Eddie. Cam has spent countless hours scouring Craigslist, Facebook pages […]
