Our time in limbo has come to an end. We finally bought our new homestead. Our new farm is from a gone era. The little farm house hasn’t been loved in many years. The fields are all overgrown. Even the little green tractor hasn’t felt a fire in its belly in a long time.
Work and Tools
So now begins the hard work to make this quiet relic the active homestead of our dreams. The very first thing we had to do was mow the grass and clean up. You would be amazed at the hand tools and homemade gadgets we found while cleaning up. It seemed to give us a connection with the history of the farm. I’m always so impressed with the creativity and craftsmanship of past generations.
What the Future Homestead Holds
Our first visitor was an elderly couple that were friends with the family who used to farm and love our little homestead. They told us a few stories of the family who used to live here. I look at the pens and the barn and can imagine the Longhorn cows that were worked through these pens. I’m excited at the thought of this being cleaned up with a new generation of cows coming though these pens. I get giddy thinking about my very own dairy cow standing here waiting to be milked each morning.
Keep Ya Posted
I’ll keep you posted. But for now I will “Be Still” and wait because I hurt my back. I am at the mercy of my kids and husband to do the work. We are blessed. I can’t wait to procure some animals and get a garden put in. 🙂 Happy Homesteading!
