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, […]

Party like it's 1899!

Party like it’s 1899!

The first time we walked into the dusty old barn two years ago, I pictured this night- a barn dance! (Cam pictured hay space, but whatever, we see who won that battle.) I think the barn might be a little bit magical. Or, maybe it just seems that way to me when our friends all […]

Maple Syrup 2015

Maple Syrup 2015

The past few weeks (before Snowmageddon here in Kentuckiana) were filled with marking, tapping, collecting, boiling, and bottling Maple syrup.

Father’s Day Camping Trip

We just got back from a GREAT overnight camping trip. For father’s day this year, Cam wanted to go camping with the horses. We had never done it, but Cam had been wanting to for awhile. Right down the road from us, (when used to refer to places in the country, this expression can be […]

Soccer Season

Soccer Season

Soccer season has just ended for the girls. Growing up, I played zero sports. I did not do soccer or tee ball or basketball. I begged my parents, but they just wouldn’t let me. No, that’s a compete joke. I don’t think I asked one time. They totally would have signed me right up. I […]

You never know what might happen when you come visit Old Capitol Farm. A golf cart ride? Quite possibly. Horseback ride? Sure. Pulled in the canoe by a mower? Could be. Cam usually has something delightful up his sleeves.Tonight our unsuspecting guests were invited on a mushroom adventure. It’s Morel season here in southern Indiana. […]
