Farm Obsessed

Last weekend we visited our friend's new farm.  Both Jonathan and I were so taken with it that we have been pouring over real estate ads all week looking for a farm of our own.  We probably won't be getting one until the last chick of ours has been fully launched and is off to university, but then look out...

There were so many things that all converged to make us fall in love with a farm.  First there was the gorgeous sunset on the evening we arrived.

Then there was beautiful thick hoare frost the next morning.

There had been a snowfall a few days prior to our visit so the countryside was gorgeous.

The farm had an old barn that had lots of treasures in it - there's really nothing better than poking around in an old barn.

The company was fun - there were 6 children between us ranging in age from 6 months to 17 years old, and there were 5 adults, and 3 dogs.  And the food was fantastic (humour me while I show you my apple jelly series of photos - I couldn't help myself, the jelly was so pretty).

The farm is on a quiet country road, and it was all so pretty.  We didn't really want to come home.

  1. I can imagine you wouldn;t want to leave. I'm a farm girl at heart. Hubby would never consider it but I dream of living in the country. I've always wanted a cow.

  2. I grew up on a small but busy dairy farm. I hated the work but the place, the hay mow, the old farm house, the 200 acres of fields, the bush that surrounded it all, the whole place will forever be my favourite place that I can never return to. Your post has made me kind of nostalgic! As much as I loved it all, I'd never want a full-fledged farm of my own, but perhaps an acre or so in the country!

  3. Oh Grace, your photos are beautiful! I think I could drop everything and move to the country on a farm in a heartbeat!

  4. Originally I wanted to buy a farm/acreage but settled in town and glad I did. Winter is a lot of work - but there are the two of you so you would be fine!

  5. Gorgeous pictures. I have always found frost to be beautiful and you have captured it so well. As for the jelly I can almost taste it. Sounds like you had a great time.

  6. Oh me too I would love a farm! Seems appropriate to tell you that some fairly rustic sap buckets are on their way to you right this minute! Better make sure there are some maple trees on that farm. :)

  7. Gorgeous photos - Gave me some ideas for ways to take photos of our farm, too!

  8. I grew up on a farm...reminds me of my childhood- especially the river and old fence
