This page describes my life on a small farm in Gilmer County West Virginia USA.

The Farm

The place where I grew up was a lot of fun. Our farm was just a small 46 acre farm in Gilmer County , West Virginia. We had chores to do just like everybody else. When our chores and homework were finished, it was time to play. My favorite thing to do was going up on the hill and riding my black stallion. We would go for walks together and be in horse shows together. His name was Midnight.
My second favorite activity was gathering in the cows so my daddy could milk them. Then Dad would take the milk to Mommy. Mommy would churn butter, make cottage cheese, and whatever else she could think of with the milk. I just preferred to drink it. To me there’s no milk like fresh milk.
Where is that farm life today? If I could I would go back to it in a heartbeat!

I am a country girl. I love farm life although I live in the city now. I will always be a country girl at heart. My writing will reflect that. I am married to Chris Breva who is another wikinut.

We are now getting removed from nature by the day. Sadly, even in agrarian societies people have an increasing tendency to move to cities - siva
