Despite the wide open land we have at the Big Farm, we are lucky to also have a few neighbors nearby (relatively speaking!).
The neighbors closest to where my house will be, own a lovely house with a beautiful barn and pasture. They were gracious enough to allow myself, my favorite pair of kiddos, and my parents over to take a tour.
While the kiddos ran wild, we discussed the process of building their barn. It was such a help to hear their feedback and experiences. They are planning on getting chickens in the spring-I am super excited to know my neighbors also share a love of chickens. It was wonderful to get to know our next-door neighbors better.
We also got to tour the farm on the other side of the street. It is such a unique, peaceful farm. The kiddos had a blast meeting all of the animals, everything from burrows to miniature ponies to turkeys with their toe nails painted pink! We also learned quite a bit from their experiences and advice.
We now feel much better prepared to make the decisions ahead. It was such a fun day sharing experiences, meeting their animals and getting to know our neighbors better.
Until next time…
