A SPECIAL LADY
ON A SPECIAL FARM

This amazing young lady,
(nickname "Ellie May")
lives alone on this historic
200-year-old farm in Missouri.
Well, not really alone . . .
she has goats, horses, a pig, 4 dogs, a cat & a macaw.)

Her farm is a living museum
of an original 19th century homestead,
including historic log cabin, barns, limestone root cellar,
cistern, spring-fed catfish pond, a 2-seater "out house",
all surrounded by cleared fields and fertile farmland.

The land is marked by an historic gravestone,
where members of the Kissing family are buried,
who settled here from Germany in the 1800's.

This young woman knows what she has, and where she lives.
She is happy, content and capable
of managing and maintaining this original historic farm.

(Tomorrow's blog will feature photos
of her screened-in porch,
which she calls her "favorite room in the house",
and some of her treasures.)
