On Our Little Farm

Taking off the old siding 001

Taking the house apart 001  Our house 1906 with cottonwood tree 001 Our house 001 Cory and Arney taking a break on the new porch 001I think the steers were ready for a Kodak moment!!!steer's #1 001 streer's #1 001 steer's #3 001

Today just seemed like a good time to share our farm. As you can see we worked hard to make a very old unloved house our own. My Jenny helping take of the old siding.Arney taking out the whole front of the house..moving the door to the center and adding two large windows.Adding the wrap around porch was really a love project, we had always wanted a porch.Our son Cory and Arney taking a brake on the almost done porch.

We had steers for a few years until Arney’s knee had surgery. And the last picture is CJ standing and Arney holding Treyton, the Grandkids loved coming to the farm. We had chicken’s,Duck’s, even a Ginny hen. Not counting all the wonderful birds that lived here naturally. Thank you for visiting our little farm today…

Looks like a wonderful place to me!
Do you read "Mary Jane's Farm" magazine? ( I think that is the name...can't find my copy which I picked up at a newstand. I don't subscribe but sometimes like to read about gardening and raising chickens...ha!)

Wow what great changes you made to your new home to make it your own. How lucky you are. Love your barn also. I am a barn person. I am so jealous! I am looking for a place here in North Carolina. Are you putting in a garden? I long for chickens and a garden. Enjoy every moment. Thank you so much for sharing your homestead I am inspired!

Hi Mary!
Thanks for stopping by to visit me! It was nice to see you at my blog!
I love your little farm...I've always wanted to live on one! I love animals and I'd adore having lots of birds and even steer or goats or horses...whatever!
You did such a super job with your home and you can feel the love that went into it all.
I hope you are doing well and I also hope to be back blogging soon! xo Betzie

(waving from up in Naples ID) I saw your comment on blogger about the template problem and cannot find your email address.
See if your browser has a compatibility option and click it to okay that while signed in to blogger in the dashboard area. That is what worked for me.
