Fall Weekend on the Farm

It was a beautiful weekend here. We visited the neighboring farm. We got lost in the corn maze, took a hayride and visited the petting zoo. The farm has been in the same family for seven generations. They use their own trees to make fence posts and build the hay wagons. They have 300 acres today... they used to have 600, but they sold half of it so the local high school could be built next door. The old log cabin, which the great-great-great-great grandfather built by hand, was moved to its current location. It is still furnished, there was a fire in the fireplace, and current grandfather sits in a rocker by the fire to tell you about its history. It's one of the nice things around here.
