    Hi :)

    My husband and I just purchased 62 acres of (timbered) land in the country + an adjacent 5 acre homestead with a barn/stables and a workshop. He’s most excited about working the 62 acres (not farming, mostly clearing parts of it and planting new trees in other parts. I’m most excited about the farm! He asked me to help him think of a name for all of this.

    After we get settled, we plan to garden, sell firewood and raise chickens/goats/rabbits.

    Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

    Thank you!

    Originally this was all my husbands dream - I was perfectly content on .4 acre! But now that we’ve spent a lot of time out there exploring - I’m ready and it’s become my dream!

    Maybe something that combines your name & your husband's? Or some feature on your place (like Big Hill Farm)?

    Names are tough.
