AMISH FARM AND HOUSE
New additions at the farm. Both of these sets of twins (each with a boy and a girl) were born late afternoon on Wednesday, May 17th. And one week earlier, on the 10th, we had two other sets of twins, one of twin girls and the other twin boys. There aren't many things cuter than a baby pygmy goat! I especially enjoy taking one into the big store next to us wearing a little red vest that says "THERAPY GOAT." People's reactions are priceless!
SOME FARM FRIENDS
From the beginning of April through the end of October, Monday through Saturday, I'm the "Resident Woodcarver" at The Amish Farm and House, a well known museum farm in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Guests from all over the U.S. and many foreign countries visit this site that is tucked right in the middle of all the 20th Century hustle and bustle. The farm brochure says "Where Today Touches History." Very true!
The main part of my shop is the back third of this barn, but, besides a lot of old farm equipment that is on display in the front of the barn, I have a number of pieces displayed in the front two thirds of the barn.
There's a lot of clover growing all over the farm. If you look hard enough, there's a chance you'll find one or more four-leaf clovers. There's one in each of these photos. The one is super easy to find. The other is a bit tougher.
Following are a random photos of the farm, as well as some shots of my "farm friends."
