Ye olde farme

Some pics for you, taken yesterday when I went for a walk in the drizzle.

This is the River Beaudet, which borders the back of our property.

The path through our woodlot to the back pasture, and the river.

The barn, the granary and the house, viewed from one of the fields.

You are going to have to click on this to enlarge it to see the line of turkeys walking across the field! (to the left of the trees at the centre right.) Turkeys looooove leftover soybeans! The water is a municipal drain that runs through our property and into the river. It attracts some nice water birds and other wildlife. The blue herons are quite fond of it!

Another view of the buildings, from farther back.

And farther back, where the fields meet the woodlot.

This is our pond, fed by a natural spring.

I am looking forward to having animals! Some nice sheep dotting the landscape...


  1. Wow! It seems you took a nice LONG walk around your property. Love that your next to a river, how fun!

    HEAVEN!!!!!! I just cannot imagine having all that space to wander around in. And it's all so beautiful. .. and a SPRING on your property .. how cool is that?!

    Thanks for the pics. of course now you've just created an insatiable desire to see MORE MORE MORE ... not gonna sign this.

  4. I am so envious of your farm!!

    And tell those turkeys to stay north of the border for another week at least.

  5. I was just hoping yesterday that you'd post more pictures of your new home. I LOVE the photos of your farm. It's really beautiful, and the fact that you have a pond and are bounded by a river are even better, so peaceful.

  6. Where are the Llamas?

  7. Hahaha! I was thinking the same thing - those turkeys better stay north of the border for another week (of course, then there's Christmas for them to worry about; perhaps they'd better just stay on the property altogether!).
    The new place is just beautiful. I would LOVE to have all that space to ramble around on. What great walks! And hang in there - I'm so sorry it didn't work out with NotKane, but you will find the perfect pupper for that new farm very soon!

    What a wonderful, lovely farm! I can only imagine how wonderful it must be to have all that land to explore, those lovely sights to see, and places for a menagerie.

    Can I come work for you? as a puppy nanny or something???

  9. Sharon, feel free to come farmsit when we next go on a three-week vacation. HHAHAHAHA! Of course, we do have an annoying tendency to go away in the depths of winter. And there is that minor detail of cross-continental airfare, but still! I have cross-country skis and we have an awesome tobogganing hill right here on the farm

    We do feel very fortunate to live here. Believe me, it was quite affordable too, although had the farm been an hour from Toronto instead of an hour from Ottawa, it would have cost us a few million. Well, no, it would have been paved over already, but you get my point!


Thank you for all your comments, which I love to read!
