Clean and Green


Last week I was admiring clean cows and now it is clean barns.  



I have passed by this pristine barn a few times this year.  It always looks the same.  By that I mean, clean, white, and bright.  We run a very, very small operation here at the farmette and our barn is not nearly this perfect.  Nice to look at, but hard to maintain, no doubt.

Linking up with Tom today.  Pay him a visit, won't you?!!!

  2. They keep up everything nice. My barn hasn't been painted in 20 years, probably could use a bit.One down the road went on the market and clean won the issue, it sold in 2 days.

  4. I had to read that quote to the whole household, it was so funny. That's a gorgeous barn. To me a barn should be red, though. But I know all the Amish barns are white. Have a super Sunday! ((hugs)), Teresa :-)

  11. Haha...I love that quote by Johnny Carson! My dad used to ask "I back of whose barn?" whenever he didn't hear or understand something that was said to him...lol! It was his way of asking what, where, when...or whatever! Have you ever heard anyone doing that? We got a kick out of it and my oldest so, who idolized his grandpa says it now :) Beautiful and pristine barn!

  12. I bet the easiest way to have a clean barn is no animals, but what would be the fun of that?

  13. It speaks to me like the owners are either in debt up to their ears or they have plenty of income for the upkeep. I like it. [not having the money, but the white barn itself]

  14. Hey there....hope you are enjoying your Summer....{Wait, is it Summer yet}
    I'm guessing this Barn would be a hard one to keep clean. Looks pretty now

  15. I wonder if the owners actually farm here, or if they are city people who have the fame just as a hobby.

    There was a barn behind my house when I was a kid. When I was maybe ten I stole a few of my mother's cigarettes and went behind the barn to light up with a friend. Awful! I have never smoked again. So, my lifetime cigarette count is two.
