Follow the journey of a farm that has been in my family for over 140 years. The center room of the house is still the original log cabin built in 1883 after 10 years of living in a sod house and where my father was born in 1909.
I have been living this adventure for the last twelve years. Most of you probably remember the movie “Under the Tuscan Sun”, beautiful woman, buys old Italian house with romantic dreams of dinners with her family and friends — but, reality sets in and she finds a myriad of creepy-crawly things in all of the corners. Yup, it was pretty much like that, only bigger…skunks, raccoons, and possum.
I will also be telling the story of saving a farm house from ruins, a house where my parents raised a dozen kids, a house that saw laughter, tears, and a lot of wine! In this section I will detail some of the DIY and remodeling projects, as well as, some history of the farm, through blogs and family stories.
Watch here updates with new farm blogs and resource links that I like.
