The Sunday Farm Updates

Barn PatioEach Sunday – we publish our “Sunday Farm Update”.

The topics vary from week to week and season to season. Planting the garden, raising our chickens, the progress  of our little wine vineyard and apple orchard – or the latest building project on the farm.  Quite simply, it’s our way of telling the everyday story of building our dream – Old World Garden Farms.

  1. I love your ideas. Thank you for sharing them. I am now in my 70’s and you are really inspiring me. I am limited on energy and stamina, but do you have any suggestions to help me get started? I see you are in Ohio as am I. Thanks a million.

  3. I am so thankful I found your blog. I have always lived on a farm, and I guess I have taken it for granted. You seem to have such energy and passion, and the food and recipes look so delicious! You have inspired me to think of maybe having a blog, too.

    • Thank you so much and thank you for taking time to comment on our blog. You should give it a shot – we have found it to really help keep us organized when it comes to the farm. Glad to have you stop by! Jim and Mary
