Hi there, we are so glad you stopped by. We raised our family in Oregon in a 22 room Farmhouse. It was about 100 years old and we completely restored it. We had 10 acres of ground and finally decide to raise Asian Pear. We ended up planting 2200 trees.
There was lots of room for the kids to run and play and work. We raised cows, a peacock, rabbits, lambs, pygmy goats, and a llama. We also had dogs, a cat named Ben, that loved to lay on the waterbed, and gerbils until they multiplied so much they had to leave.
It was everything we believe families need to experience with lots of love everyday.
We grew a HUGE garden and we canned everything we could. From peaches, pears, applesauce, pickles, grape juice, cherries, and more. I had a man come out and he cried when he saw our pantry because he said it was “just like his mama use to do.” He said they knew the family would make it through the winter with all that food.
All of our kids are grown now with children of their own and that means we are grandparents. We Love It!! Our kids are scattered all over the United States and sometimes it is so hard to see everyone. But it is great we have so many ways to stay in touch with all of them.
Tell your family everyday you love them and are proud of them. Take time to talk to them and really get to know them as they grow up.
