    I love farm names. They're so creative. I thought names of farms and ranches would be a neat topic to discuss.

    For those of you who have them...

    What is the name of your farm or ranch? What is the story behind the name?

    Do you have a cool sign by the entrance to share your farm's name with everyone who goes by? Post a pic (if you can)!

    Thanks in advance for sharing. (I'd share a story, but I don't have my own little place in the country...yet [​IMG]).

    Apple Blossom Farm....we have an apple orchard that is simply lovely in the spring and is very visible to passersby. Youngest son suggested the name and we are currently making the sign. Will post a pic if we ever get it done!

    If It Flies Farm started with wild birds, then hummers, chickens and bees. Plus the other way of reading it...... if it flies, we can......

    Barred Feather Farm. It goes back to my grandparents chickens, they always had barred rocks so that is what I got in "honor" of them, if that makes sense. Had been racking my brain for years what to name our place and then it struck me when I was picking up feathers that the chickens had dropped.

    Our neighbors sell Creative Moments scrapbooking stuff and bought a road sign that says "Memory Lane". Thats how I got the idea to call our farm "Poultry Lane Farm." Two days ago my brother bought me our farm sign while he was in Tennesee. I will post pics as soon as possible!
