I seem to be on a farmhouse kick right now!
However, this one is quite different than what I have posted before. Even though it is indeed an old farmhouse...you can see what happens to one of these remnants of the past when taken care of. Even though it seems this house could be on a tree lined street in some small town, it is actually located in the middle of an open field with wheat and corn on all sides. I liked the iron fence that set the home apart from the rest of the fields. It was like an oasis ...green grass, trees and a small barn in the middle of a sea of gold.
This farm has been in the same family for generations...unique today with the onslaught of the high stakes corporations overtaking the family farms. Kudos to the family who has fought off the temptation of easy money in order to maintain an independent spirit that made this country what it is today...although for how much longer...I don't know. To this family...blood is still thicker than money.
