    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...

    Yep, and sometimes I had to help sows give

    birth to pigs if one got stuck. It was hilarious trying to watch my then boyfriend try to scoop up pig cleanings with a shovel and I just came over and picked it up with my hand. :P Hey, I can shower afterward.. and believe me, I did. Sometimes I would be covered in pig poo from...

    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...

    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...

    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.

    I Despair of Meeting My Goal.

    With so few people on Experience Project who have even grown up on a farm, how can I meet my goal of finally finding someone like myself?  I doubt it's possible.  I've found only one person in my life, but I can't access her anymore.  And she didn't even grow up on...

    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.

    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...

    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...
