A Family Treasure



This family farm resides not too far from my own farmette.  In fact, a portion of it borders our land.  Having been in the family for generations, it continues to be a working cattle farm and a place of respite for all family members.  

If you follow the road past the house and barns, you eventually come to the family cemetery where members continue to be laid to rest.  

Linking up today with Tuesday's Treasures.

  13. My brother-in-law's parents recently bought a house with a family cemetery on the property. The graves are from the 1800s. I feel like it would be so interesting to have that on your property. Even better if the cemetery holds your own relatives. It's like they're always there with you.
