  4. Hi Debbie...I is a shame to find the conditions of what once was a working farm..but so many farmers had to give up there farms because they can't make a living!!
    Thanks for sharing these...

  6. I always wonder about the abandoned barns. Did the farming not pan out or the barns not needed any longer? These are great shots that makes you want to know the story behind the barns present day condition.

  12. It really IS sad to see such a huge working farm all grown over like that! That's awful to see... I wonder where the owners are & what happened to them! If you find out any details, be sure to let us know!

    You certainly got some great shots of the place before it's completely taken back by nature!

    Thanks so much for joining this week's Barn Charm =)

  16. I really like the round (silos?) they look like big chimneys.

  17. Terrific photographs! How interesting to see that one barn looking quite squeezed by the two silos.

  18. That first photo is funny. Looks like a bit of infill building went on there!

  25. I LOVE SILOS!! And don't you wish all the stories of places like this were written down somewhere?! Generations of family stories connected to this land - Can't wait for more shots!

  26. Great shots of the barns, love the first one.
    My Ivy barn is next to a hotel and will be demolished when the hotel expands in the near future.

  27. Sad to see places abandoned. Around here it's not so much that they can't make a living as they can't afford the taxes and house payments.

    Love that first photo.
