End of March - Small Farm Tour in Stokes County... Randy Fulk, County Ext Office took us on a tour of folks getting it done on a small scale... I just love a pretty chicken tractor....

It's all in the details!

 

cistern

Just as you thought... it's a cistern. Located behind the High School Ag Office and connected to one drain - it holds around 600 gallons.

So, what did I happen to find at a farm auction that very weekend??  MY VERY OWN CISTERN~  not as preeety, I'll agree - but we can fix that... I called my husband and told him to bring the trailer.

 

rain garden

At the High School, they also have rain gardens that take the runoff from the parking lots... very, very cool.

truffles

Right Again!  Truffle beds!  Yes, right here in Stokes County. These are new beds with trees that have been inoculated. Featured on Martha Stewart...

view

View from Plum Granny Farm -- Hanging Rock in the distance... absolutely gorgeous spring day.

March 29 and hot as the blazes already!   This is Plum Granny Farm... see big greenhouse in the distance? These are garlic fields, they have strawberries, raspberries, asparagus and more.... All Organic.

Wow!  Gives me inspiration....

Wow, this is not your every day listing.  I'd love to have a farm but I think I'd rather be 25 years younger in order to consider it.  Best wishes getting this beauty sold!
