We have seen some beautiful farms in our travels and some of you own them! Pennsylvania and Iowa have some of the most beautiful farmsteads we have seen but Ohio has its share. Every state has beautiful farms and we have been privileged to see some of them.
This would be a good title to hand down to the grand children, you know?
We think the old windmill on the Ertl farm is gone now since they tiled that farm. It's not in our view anymore. So much fencerow is gone we can see a house from our back porch on Doak Road we couldn't see before.
