Our Home, Our Farm!

Welcome to our home. We would like to show you around our home. We live on Deertail Creek in a rural neighborhood. Here are some pictures of the lay-out of our farm:

This is how the buildings are laid out. L-R: The shop/machine shed. The tie-stall barn. Nana's house. Our house.
This is what the front yard looks like from the front of the house. We sit back from the road quite aways.

We have figured out from some of the older neighbors that our house was built in the late 1920's or early 1930's. We were able to get a fresh coat of paint on the house this summer. It looks much better now than it did!

 
Nana's house is on the left and our house is on the right!

Nana's house was built in 2005. It was built as a bakery but with some re-construction work when we bought the place it has turned into a nice little home. Here are some pictures of the outside of the house:

This is the outside of Nana's house. For inside view click here.
Nana's house is close to ours which makes it nice when it's cold in the winter. The creek runs through the woods behind the houses!

 

That gives you a little idea of what our home looks like. It would be great if you all could come up and visit, but for those who can't this will give you and idea of where we are.

 

We have lots of wildlife up here. Black bears, BIG deer, coyotes, wolves, skunks(LOTS of those), porcipines, and Bald Eagles(the best) are just a few of the wild animals that we see. The only ones we would prefer not to see around here are the wolves.

Grandpa Jorgensen came up to help us milk when David shattered both of his thumbs in May. Thanks Grandpa!!
Matt and Grandpa dumping milk into the step-saver. It took a lot of team work to get stuff done for most of the summer while David healed.
David shattered both of his thumbs in a fencing accident in May, 2009. Michelle, Matt and Becca worked together to try to keep things running while David healed up. David was able to go back to milking after about three weeks but wasn't completely healed until after about six weeks. He still has some trouble with certain things, like picking up small screws and stuff like that, but otherwise he doesn't have any lasting problems. Praise the Lord!
Becca heading down to the calf pens. Matt helping Grandpa with the milking and David is supervising! We were constantly yelling at him, "Don't touch that!" and "Don't get those bandages dirty!"
 

Here are some various pictures taken throughout the year around the farm.
