    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 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...

    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...

    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...

    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'll Go Back To Farm Life One Day

    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...

    Our Home

    It wasn't a big working farm just our own little small holding, we had chickens, ducks, turkeys, a horse and pigs. It was the most amazing childhood a child could have!

    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.
