Barn Restoration Project

We are the proud new stewards of a beautiful timber frame barn, build in 1896.  The barn still has many of it's original features for storing loose hay, and the records of heifers born in the 1930's inscribed on the dairy wing walls.  It is the heart of our farm, the center of our chores and home to our menagerie.  Doing chores in this barn every morning is like attending church, and it's easy to imagine oneself in another time, gazing up at the huge gambrel ceiling, smelling the hay, and hearing the maa-ing of goats with a milk bucket in your hand.

This barn also has a huge hole the size of a hatchback in it's northwest corner, and while she's still holding strong, we don't have much time to keep her that way, nor the resources to feed this barn the $8000 (at least) it needs to keep it standing for another 125 years.  We are currently researching grant options to help with repairs and are prepping to launch an internet fundraising campaign, as well as planning our yearly barn show to help raise funds. If you are interested in helping to save this amazing barn, please get in touch with us, and keep checking the website for details about our summer barn shows.
