Old Appalachian barns
I love old barns.
I hardly remember the house I lived in from birth through third grade,
but the barn is still vivid, as are all of the other barns I've
explored over the years.
Mark and I enjoyed the
opportunity to visit Sarah's farm Saturday. We had lots
of fun hiking and hanging out, but most of my photos are of the barn.
I think this must be the
local style for livestock barns because Sarah's log barn is nearly
identical to the one on my aunt-in-law's farm one county over. I
was very jealous of the old manure still remaining in the stalls on
Sarah's corn crib looks
more modern, with its wire hardware cloth inside, but it still has a
very nice sense of style. While researching my root
cellar book, I
learned that corn cribs and root cellars both are probably designs
stolen from the Native Americans, then given a European twist. So
perhaps structures like this have dotted the Appalachian landscape for
thousands of years.
Our chicken waterer is the POOP-free solution for modern chicken-keepers.
