I Grew Up On a Farm

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

    When we were kids we used to play in this small

    1 acre woodland/rubbish tip. It was completely surrounded by a rough council estate but was unknown to the bad kids. We used to spend every summer there building various dens and cutting back the brambles, we found hidden away in the undergrowth some stone foundations and a...

    I Wrote The Book, I GREW UP ON A FARM

    When ever I present my book, " I Grew Up On A Farm" at farm events and schools, people always share their wonderful farm memories with me.  My book seems to trigger story telling about growing up on a farm or visiting an uncle's farm when people were kids.  I feel good...

    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...

    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.

    Farm Life

    Up until I was the age of nine I lived on a farm. My grandfather owns a small farm about ten acres. He had goats,cows,pigs,chickens,peacocks and dogs. I would see him AND hear him all the time every morning doing some kind of work around the house whether it was plowing the...

    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...

    I grew up on a dairy farm and had learned how to care for animals and all the responsibilities that come along with that.  I have so many funny memories during that time and it helped make me who I am today.  Although I would never do it again,  as an adult...LOL...

    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 had goats, horses, chickens, peacocks, and dogs.  At a few points, we threw in some ducks, turkeys, and pheasants--and wild cottontails.  We had our dad catch a couple wild ones and they were PISSED.  They squealed like none other. We used to ride our f**kin...

    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...

    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...
