I Grew Up On a Farm

A little nostalgia for the childhood farm... 215 People

    Growing up on a farm was great,

    as a kid I could let my mind roam free and I could always entertain myself, as I got older I became for lack of a better term socially awkward. It gets pretty lonely living on a farm but I wouldn't trade it for anything.

    Today On My Ranch

    Today was very interesting for me. As a girl growing up on our family's ranch in Texas, there are some early morning chores me and my siblings take care of. Lynsey (10) and me (13) woke up at 4 am to herd the cattle. Normally, this is Luke's (15) job, but right now, he is...

    The first time I went to a llama farm I fell in

    love. His name is Carl, talk about love at first sight. Carl and I are married now and live on my llama farm. Yes, Carl is a llama and wears hats. Do you think this is strange? I don't, I never doubt our love and you guys shouldn't either.

    Farming

    My parents owned dairy cattle, sold goats, and grew strawberries in the spring. And then I was born, and the animal farm started falling apart. Cows and goats were sold, but my ma was able to hold onto the horse she owned. She taught my brother and I how to ride western and...

    I remember being the kid

    who would wake up at 6:00 am, and watch the beautiful sunrise in summer. You could hear the tractor, smell granny's biscuits, and run in the fields. At nights, you can hear the frogs singing their summer night lullaby.

    We Raised Horses.

    So I guess it was so much of a 'farm', being that we only had one kinda animal.  When I was younger my mother gave me a sheep though.  That stupid thing used to torture me.  It used to find me wherever I was on the farm and just start head butting me like crazy...

    I Grew Up On One, And Still Live On It.

    I am one who HATES city life with a passion.  For me personally, there's just nothing there, and way too many people.  You can't meander around looking at the sky or spot a tiny flower or insect or watch the clouds go by: it's go, go, go in the city.  You can...

    It was the farm that my ancestors got

    when they first arrived in New Zealand around 1850. I was the fifth generation of my family to grow up on that farm. It was a wonderful childhood; I can't imagine any better way to grow up. I had a herd of angora goats as pets and hundreds of acres of space to explore. My...

    Mornings In the Spring

    We used to have a lot of fun on the farm. Sold fishing worms to the store in town, and went fishing at the creek. Used to pick the corn when it was little, and eat it raw. Sweetest corn I ever had until the new variety Peaches and Cream hit the stores. Used to pick apples off the...
