My hubby and I live in Central PA on a 120 acre dairy farm. My hubby has lived on this farm all his life. His grandparents and then his parents had the farm. In a couple of years ( maybe 2 or 3 ) we will be a Century Farm . That is a farm that has been in the same family for 100 years. Hubby took it over from his parents in 1972 . He is also a volunteer fire fighter ( 41 years ) , a forest fire warden and a Township Supervisor. A lot of older people in our area always call him if they have problem. He always helps them out. There are many nights he gets up in the middle of the night and goes on a fire call. He sometimes doesnt get home til almost milking time in the morning. We do all the work ourselves . We can't afford any hired hands . Although our one neighbor , who is a retired farmer, helps us out a lot. We do all the field work and the planting. The neighbor , myself and my hubby are usually the ones who do all the hay and straw unloading . I just think of it as good exercise ! LOL ! I feel we are so lucky to live where we do. We live in a very small town on a beautiful farm. We are our own bosses. And, unfortunately we don't give ourselves a vacation ! Vacations and farming do not go together . We have 5 grand kids and they love to come here . They go to the barn with us and help .I feel it is such a great experience for them . And I hope they will look back someday and remember all the fun times they had at Mamma and Papee's farm .
