Farming Activities

One of the many, many papers that we’ve had to sign in the process of purchasing our new home was some sort of “agricultural disclosure” form.

It said something along the lines of, “in signing this form, you state that you understand that the area you are purchasing this home in is zoned R-5.  [rural, five acre minimum lot size]  There may be farming activities in the area.”

Well, shoot.  And here I was thinking that we were moving into densely packed suburbia.  (Not!)

Farming activities?

We might perpetuate some.

(We did make sure that there were no dairies, no feedlots, and no commercial row-crop farms with the potential for overspray, though.  Just in case you worried.  We’ll create our own noxious odors, thanks…)

Yep, might even bring in some real back-woods non-urban patina to the place.

Signed, yours truly

I am a farm-raised homeschooling mom. I take great joy in making nutritious food that inspires people to take seconds. Thirds, anyone? We are a God-fearing, Christ worshiping family that enjoys good friends and good eats. If the kitchen is clean and the living room carpet is visible, then that's a nice bonus.
