Nostalgia is a powerful thing, and as one grows older, the past exerts a stronger pull. I often think of that farm, and dream of a simpler life where one wakes to the sound of crowing roosters and never has to hear the noise of traffic. I am descended from a long line of farmers, stretching back generations until the beginning of time, and the need to be close to the land and connected to my ancestral roots culminated in me seeking out a Farmette of my own.
Blessed to reside in the great state of Virginia, with its gorgeous countryside of green rolling hills and fertile soil, my husband & I closed on a secluded peaceful 5 acre property 18 months ago. Currently we use the farm as a weekend retreat/getaway only, but the eventual plan is to transition to full-time country living. Last summer we commissioned a Landscape Design Master Plan, to begin the immediate implementation of a pleasure garden, and I see so much potential everywhere I look. It's exciting to embark on this new adventure, and we're calling our newly found paradise...Sunnytime Farm.
