  5. The farm does look in good condition with a new shiny roof and a worn path is still visible so maybe it's owner just quit farming recently. Who knows.

  7. Sadly, Farms are getting to be a thing of the past, at least the small family farmer. I'll be talking about that on my next post in fact.

  11. I hear you, and how far did you have to drive before you came across a corporate farm with their big buildings that hold the livestock that are treated inhumanely and fed hormones. Or, fields of crops that are loaded with insecticides and weed killers ... that's why the real farmers are forsaken. It will be a miracle if any of us survive.

  13. Yes - Bless the farmers, because many in my family ARE. And their livelihood really depends on so much luck and good fortune. It's a hard life; but also as I remember full of beauty too.
    Love this old fence. I am so inspired to go for a country drive with my camera and see what I can spy. :)

  17. The farming way of life as I used to know it is almost a thing of the past. Too sad. The costs of everything not to mention the price of land makes you wonder how farmers make it. I do love your fence shot!

  21. Maybe they just moved into town and still have the farm. One can hope I suppose.
