Country Living: Living The Dream


Who hasn't yearned for a home in the country, a farm with a country home,
a garden, maybe a few cows, lots of animals and especially the peace and serenity of another time? An online blog, Life on a Southern Farm, provides a heart-warming glimpse of a family living the life that rivals our most poignant dreams.


The author of the blog, Pam , invites us to " come visit Backwoods Farm way down South, where you can rock on the 4 columned front porch and watch the goats play, cows graze and guineas run around. Sit a spell at the pond and listen to crickets, frogs and maybe an owl in the distant woods. See hawks fly their circles, bass jumping, catfish swimming." She adds, that "I live on a 100 acre farm with my husband, a few cows, a few goats, a big dog, 2 cats, 8 guineas, and a donkey name Jack. Of course there is Annie the goat(don't tell her) she thinks she is a person. We live a back to basics, debt free sort of life with hard work to keep us occupied."



Take advantage of Pam's priceless invitation to join her family as they explore their 100 acres of farmland, once ravaged by Sherman in the Civil War. Thrill with them as they discover artifacts from another era, watch as their barn is raised, chuckle as they patiently teach their goats to be goats, fall in love with the farm mascot, a donkey, named what else, Jack.



Learn how Pam's husband transformed what looked like an old country tavern, with oodles of appeal in its own right, to a dazzling white columned estate farm house. Both are so wonderful that it is difficult to choose your favorite.



I promise you will find the experience so real that you can almost breathe the air as the laundry dries on the line. Pam writes with a charming, down-home wry humor, shares a weekly mouth-licking recipe ever pulling you up-close-and-personal with lots of posts and photographs that fully capture the joys and wonder of life on a working, country farm.

Connie! Oh NO!
I'm wondering if your "Jack" will appreciate the shared honor? Pam's "Jack", I'm sure can be bribed into acceptance with a ripe, red apple. Not so sure about your "Jack". *chuckle & wink*
