Sheep Farm



These beautiful Katahdin sheep are raised on a local farm not far away.  I had the opportunity to visit and take some photos of them as well as the Belted Galloway cattle raised there recently.




Loneliness, thy other name, thy one true synonym, is prairie.

– William A. Quayle, The Prairie and the Sea (1905)


Lessons From the Farm


What I learned growing up on the farm was a way of life that was centered on hard work, and on faith and on thrift.  Those values have stuck with me my whole life.

~Rick Perry

I can certainly relate to this having grown up on a dairy farm in Iowa and now having my own small hobby farm in Tennessee.
