Crops I grow: Had a plentiful garden this year.Black eyes, crowder peas, Mississippi purle hole peas, corn, potatoes, zucchini & squash.

Hobbies I enjoy: We actually invested in Chestnut trees, so we have 20 now of them to go along with our 5 Hickory trees. We irrigated our front field and installed popup sprinkler heads for each tree. Reading,cooking- ,gardening,ridi- ng my tractor for no reason at all, We do alot of side handy man jobs and DIY projects at home. From our brick gas fire pit to our 16x22 back porch we built this past summer. We have now added 10 more Chestnut trees to our property.

Pets: Our dog Patches.... she's a Border Collie mix & one cat, Jeepers-Also an occasional possum,a fox and a lot of squirrels. At least that's all we've seen. :)We are interested in getting a couple of horses so are now in the building/planni- ng stage for that.

Farm Motto: A hard day's work never hurt anyone.

  Thank you for visiting my webpage. I love my emus as well! They are such interesting creatures and so affectionate! We live near the Chestnut Ridge, which is in Westmoreland Co, PA. Unfortunately, the chestnuts were wiped out many years ago by some type of blight. I would love to try and grow some Chestnut trees, but they would become "goat food" to my herd of goats!

Elk and goats ate alot of plants and trees this year. I think I have the elk figured out with a double fence. And the goats a new pen. So next year we'll be replanting trees and crossing our fingers.
