I love this farm. If you haven’t seen my house, you may not know that I have an affinity for barns. We have photos and wood block prints of barns throughout our house. And we recently installed a reclaimed white washed barn wood wall.
This farmstead and barn are across the street from our house and neighborhood, and I love looking at it everyday as we leave our house. I knew some development was going to come into the area, and I tired to contact the owners of the property..because I would really love to photograph more of it, so that they have it for posterity. But I saw the bulldozers line up last fall, and knew the new neighborhood was about to break ground, so I ran over with my daughter one night and took a few shots from the road, of the property I love so much.
I hope (and have heard rumors) that they may turn this portion of the property into a type of working farm/museum, and that would make me so happy. But just in case they don’t, I wanted a few photos to remember it by.(..and hopefully if I can get in touch with the owners, I can pass them along to them as well.)
It’s always hard to see these farms change and morph into new neighborhoods. I have thoroughly enjoyed walking and riding over to see the goats and sheep, and peacocks with my daughters, and I will greatly miss it when it is gone.
So I wanted to capture a slice of history while I still had the chance.
Hi, our name is Ron and Kathy Kechter, this farmstead belongs to us and our family. This farm has been in the family since 1910. We saw two pictures in the Locality Restaurant this evening. They are beautiful! How much are those two framed? Thank you!
