I love that this thread is three years old!

I very much enjoyed reading y'alls stories. I hope we come up with a good name for our little neck of the woods (that we just bought one month ago). We're getting into the agriculture business, too. We're just trying to find our niche! A niche, a name, and a lot of hard work!

Happy Trails to All!

Well, since this thread has been resurrected...

We have many, many mulberry trees on our property, and they line the driveway on one side, so for a long time we referred to the place as Mulberry Lane Farm. However, when we started thinking about our business goals and it came time to register a domain name for our website, we found the mulberrylanefarm.com and other variations were already taken, so it was time to go back to the drawing board.

The other type of tree that we have a few of is hickory. There are several in an area in the back of our property, which we have always referred to as "the cove." Dad said "what about Hickory Cove Farm?" We all liked it, it was available, and so Hickory Cove Farm we are!

Our home & business is Skunk Creek Ranch. There is a little teeny tiny 3-4' wide creek that runs through our property which surprise surprise is called Skunk Creek. We decided to go with that for a name because even though we can't wait to move and get our own place(get off the in-laws ground!), we always want to remember our roots and the place that built our family & business into what it is today.

Storybook Farm, I named it that because I live in the pines at 7,600 feet, and it looks like a fairy tale in my eyes. 1/4 acer a mile closer to heaven.

We named our farm "End of Trail Farm" Because my DH says he is not going to leave till God calls him Home to Heaven.

We have 8 acreas. and have been here 27 years. Just built a new house and barn so I guess he means it. LOL

May your bobbins always be full!!!

We named our little place the Bushel & Peck because of a song my Grandfather used to sing to me. I also envision bushels of veggies and berries along with my pecking hens!

This song is from the musical Guys and Dolls.

I love you, a bushel and a peck!
A bushel and a peck, and a hug around the neck!
A hug around the neck, and a barrel and a heap
A barrel and a heap, and I'm talkin' in my sleep.
About you.
About you!
About you!
My heart is leapin'!
I'm having trouble sleepin'!
'Cause I love you, a bushel and a peck
You bet your pretty neck I do!
Doodle, oodle, oodle.
Doodle, oodle, oodle.
Doodle oodle oodle oo.
I love you, a bushel and a peck
A bushel and a peck, go and beats me all to heck!
Beats me all to heck how I'll ever tend the farm
Ever tend the farm when I want to keep my
Arms - about you -
About you!
About you!
The cows and chickens
are goin' to the dickens!
'Cause I love you a bushel and a peck
You bet your pretty neck I do -

Doodle oodle oodle
Doodle oodle oodle
Doodle oodle oodle, oo!

Well, y'all, I had peeked in on this conversation once before, and I am back. I am happy to announce that my fiance and I got a farm!! We're between two towns NE of Austin, and our address is in one (Taylor) yet, we're actually closer to the other (Thrall). There's just over 2 acres, about 1/2 an acre is fenced so my Catahoula can safely run and play during the day when we are gone. We found honey bees in the water meter box when we moved in (which, unfortunatly, had to be removed... it still hurts my heart ). We found a pear tree, a mulberry tree, random squash plants, tons of sunflowers, and a pumpkin. Now, a friend has given us a Magnolia, tomatoes, bell peppers, another pumpkin, and some strawberries to plant.

I asked Josh (my fiance) what he thought of the name I picked... Fair Hope. It comes from the town in Alabama where I was born, Fairhope, and I split the words apart. The two of us have been through a lot in our lives... but we feel blessed to be together, starting our live in such a beautiful, quiet, peaceful place. Fair Hope just sounded right, to me!

He and our friend that gave us all the plants found part of the old mailbox out in the shed with the address and part of the flag still attached, and I will be painting the name of the farm on it to hang somewhere in the house, or perhaps on our front porch.

EXCITEMENT!!!

You all have such great names! My dream is for a small micro ranch. Enough acres to just manage chickens, a couple of goats, maybe a pig or too. I've even dreamed of having a couple mini Angus cows. Who knows, what I'll end up with...lol. All I know is that i'm gonna need a beautiful names for our place and you girls have given me food for thought! Please post signs of your farms and ranches, I'd love to see them!

Our farm is known in our family as "the west farm" because we live 1 mile west of town. My mother-in-law had owned the property until we purchased it from her 5 yrs ago. She still has property east of town, referred to as ..you guessed it, "the east farm".

We have our "farm" named "Sweet Crossing." Before we moved to our 1 acre lot in the country, we were living in town in a row home. Hated it! So when we moved, we got a bottle of wine as a gift from my boss from a local winery called "Sweet Crossing" and it stuck! From where we were to where we came, it was a Sweet Crossing! We are so blessed!

Our farm was named from a conversation that took place between our youngest son and a local waitress. We had just moved back to West Virginia to our little 5 acre piece of heaven. Dinner discussion was packed with dreams of raising Nubian goats, chickens, and sheep. It was about this time the waitress came to ask my then 4 year old what he would like to drink. He said "Do you have goats milk?" The waitress
replies, "No honey we have cows milk." Frustrated 4 year old responds "No I want goats milk!" Waitress in very pacifying voice, "Why not have some Moo Milk?" My sons response, "MaaMilk. MaaMilk. Not Moo Milk." From that moment on our little piece of heaven has been know has Maa Milk Farm.

I thought I would bump this up, cause there are so many new girls here that I think they would get a kick out of some names and reasons why...

My husband and I are both big book nerds. We actually met through a fan club for a series of books that we read. Shortly before we bought our farm, I was re-reading the first Lord of the Rings book, In the book the main character, Frodo, moves from his home to a different one, and the second house is called Crickhollow. I knew at once that was going to be our farm's name, since our last name is Crick, and where better to get a name for us from than a book!

Hi, I live on a small homestead in the foothills of the smoky mountains.

We named our homestead/farm The Kuntry Klucker.

We choose this name because we well live in the country and have many cluckers, well it seems that way with all of the egg songs that we here from the Ladies.
We love our Buff Orphington chickens so for us the name just fit.

Here is a few pics of our cluckers :-)
