I have always wanted a farm of my own. I was making plans for retiring to a small farm with my guy, some chickens, some goats, lots of gardening, and my dog. Now, due to several medical issues, including having my entire colon removed this spring, I have to stay very close to advanced medical care. HOWEVER, I've adopted my dream farm name for my suburban home: Flannel Jammies Farm. Invariably, you'll find me out early in the morning watering gardens or hanging clothes on the line wearing, you guessed it, flannel jammies!!!

Those names are real special gals. Even though I live on a city lot now, my farm is called Happy Acres. I've had such wonderful memories both on the farm and in the city. As Mary Jane says, "Farmgirl is a condition of the heart"

The rows in my garden are crooked too! My DH and son-in-law always point it out. I tell them what my grandma told my grandpa when he criticized her crooked rows. She said you can get more plants in a crooked row AND it confuses the birds. He was speechless.

It's not about being perfect, but enjoying what you do. Set aside time to be creative.

We named our homestead Natural Earth Farm because we strive to work with the earth as naturally as possible by organically farming, free ranging our chickens, making our handcrafts of natural fibers and by being gentle to our environment around the farm.

Warm wishes,

Our place is called Strawberry Hill farm mainly because the name was here when we moved here years ago. Many, many years ago this hillside used to be a strawberry farm and all (so I've heard) the kids in Stanwood used to bus up here to work. Strawberries are long gone but the name stayed. MB

Our farm is called "Jabez Farm". We used to live in a tiny 4 bedroom house with 10 children. We read the "Prayer of Jabez" and decided to pray for God to increase our boundaries. My family moved into a 10 bedroom/5 bath home with 8 acres (plus 5 that we are using) shortly after and have been here since!

Our place is Symbiotic Acres. Dh and I strive to maintain a balance and keep our actions and our footprint on the earth as mutually beneficial as possible, she feeds us in many ways so it is our responsibility to nourish & nurture her.

Its the family's last name, oh what a creative bunch they all were, way back when they started the farm. OH well, its been the farm's name since forever so i guess i just have to live with it.

Our farm is named "Walk in Walk Out" Farm & Cattle Co. Way back when my DH's Great grandfather bought it in 1908, you literally had to walk in and walk out when it snowed. The driveway is a mile long and it's almost straight up a hillside! When I first moved in I took my 2 wheel drive car out to town one morning (I have a 4wd for the winter-I didn't think it was going to snow that day) and when I got back it had snowed a good few inches. I tried to drive up, but ended up having to walk when my car slid halfway off the driveway into a ravine!

So, it's Walk in Walk Out Farm & Cattle Co. for a good reason!

Oh Claudia don't feel bad as I am still leaning towards K & R Farm. That would be for Kevin and Rae but a little catchy. Thought about Farm in the Woods but just didn't have quite that same flow.

when we get moved we plan on naming our home "The Sunshine Cottage" as we live in the Sunshine state, and I love the color yellow and cheery things:)

My parents bought a 240 acre farm in 1945 with a run-down house and 4 little kids. My younger sister and I were not born yet . . . we came to this farm and lived there all our growing up years.

In 1948 my dad bought a Diamond T truck, not a pickup but a truck. it was red with apple green pinstripe trim and sometimes had to be cranked to start it.

That truck was the "icon" of our farm. He raised potatoes, sheep, cattle, and every kind of fruit imaginable. When he decided he needed a brand it became the Diamond Bar T.

Then the farm & orchards became the Diamond T Farm and Orchards. My mom passed away in February 1994 and my dad in January of 1997. Because their oldest grandson is a mechanic and was VERY INTERESTED in the truck, it got a trailer ride all the way to British Columbia in the loving care of my nephew where it now lives in happy retirement!!

We have lived several places and the name has gone with us. I got the name when I was given an old Holstein cow #43a that we named Patience(because it took two of us 45 mins to milk her). She was with us for 5 months and taught us to milk. But she got cancer ad had to be put down. I loved her so much I feel that she was up there watching over us so I named us "Cowsmic Connections" We now have our own place and a cow named Honeysuckle.

Streamview.... that's the name.. Not really a farm tho. Just 80 acres or peace and joy. We do have a vegetable garden, an herb garden, many flower gardens, a small apple/peach/plum orchard. And all of this wonder overlooks Yellow Creek, a large stream down thru the center of our property, thus the name Streamview. That is the name of our lane also. We have a hang hung on our garden fence with Streamview Farms painted on it. And our new and budding company which I'll be posting when our website is available is Streamview Holdings.

Have a great Day!!!

Well i dont have a farm or ranch but i tried to. lol. with my daycare shutting down i lost my house so was forced to sell all of my precious animals but i wanted to name my farm "Tri-Acre Farm & Kennels" beacuse i love farming with chickens and rabbits and cow and goats(never had the chance to get any goats) and my house sat upon 3 acres hints the "Tri-Acre" and my dream is to start my own animal rescue so that is what the "kennels" is for. But hopes and dreams can still come true with hard work and determination .

Our farm is called Larkhaven. We have a lot of meadowlarks and to us they represented music, which is important to us. And we wanted it to be a peaceful, comfortable place for anyone who came, so we added "haven." We also were wanting the home to have a name because we were a blended family and were trying to avoid our kids having to say "mom's house" or "dad's house," as if it wasn't theirs, too. When we moved a couple of miles to a bigger farm, we couldn't come up with a better name, we liked it so much, so we just kept it.
