Raising Fu­ture Farm­ers

Country - - OUT & ABOUT - LYNN CARR Cool Ridge, West Vir­ginia

As a child, my hus­band, Wes, made won­der­ful mem­o­ries on the farm. So when his Aunt Lola and Un­cle Ralph passed away, we bought their 13-acre prop­erty. Now our grand­chil­dren are blessed to spend time on our farm.

They pick black heart cher­ries, chase light­ning bugs and help Wes and me (PawPaw and MawMaw) plant seeds in the gar­den.

All sum­mer they ex­cit­edly watch our hay dance up the moun­tain. Af­ter cut­ting hay, we ride four-wheel­ers through the fields.

Wes is a vet­eran, so we hung a flag on the barn, which the grand­chil­dren love to ex­plore. What’s more coun­try than Old Glory proudly dis­played on a weath­ered barn? As the chil­dren grow, so will their love for the land and our beau­ti­ful coun­try. There is noth­ing like farm life.
