    I am originally from Germany so I thought I’d look for some fellow Germans. Born and raised in East Germany, I had the pleasure to grow up surrounded by beautiful mountains and rich culture. My parents operated a small farm and had a few acres of land which we cut for hay- by hand. We did the entire haying process by hand, just with rakes, sais and big burlap sacks. I came over here after meeting the man of my dreams and was lucky enough to receive my Green card this year. I now live on my own farm surrounded by horses and chickens. Any other Germans out there? Hallo?

    Not German, but have some German in my background............and my husband's family also has some German. (last name Knigge)

    What a wonderful childhood it sounds like you had. How do you find farm life here compared to farm life there? Is the growing season about the same (where you are now compared to then?).
