This is Love. . .

I’ve gotta say, I never thought I would own a farm.  I really, truly never thought I would own an old, dilapidated, run down dairy farm.  Maybe we’d own some land one day, but I can honestly say I thought the farm idea had passed.  A long time ago, Chris started to get an itch to work the land.  Homesteading, chicken raising, garden growing itches covered his body and overtook his brain.  Thankfully, I never caught the bug.  It was plenty of work to manage our “normal” daily lives without throwing in the care of extra animals and more land. We both came to this realization together after a friend bought 10 acres. So, how did this happen?  I don’t know the reasons. I thought this ship had sailed.


But haven’t we all heard the line, “Love knows no reasons.  Love has not a single boundary nor distance.  Its sole purpose is to bring people together, forever.”   Now, here we stand.  Looking out at our future.  Looking at our forever.  Even though I never dreamt this dream, I look forward to going the distance because. . .This is Love.

      1. This is for info on “The Shop”.

        This two-story structure is made from hand-hewn beams connected with mortise and tenon joints. I think it may be perhaps 19th Century and the oldest structure on the farm. There are two floors with stairs to the second floor. It is small inside, with about a six foot ceiling height in the first floor. The building is currently packed full of mostly bolts and other rusty treasures and stowaways from decades of thriftiness by the previous owner. A man came by one day to consult us about some unique construction aspects of the concrete milking barn and while there he had some interesting antidotes to share about the farmer. He said that lacking refrigeration “ole Harvey would keep a hanging side of beef in the shop during the colder months, when ever he was in the mood for a steak or roast he would come out to the shop and whack off a chunk”. I’m not sure that would square with USDA today, but that’s what was done then. So the shop was definitely a multipurpose unit. I would be interested to hear what folks think we ought to do with it.

        Kind regards, Mark
