9-11-16 ~ It's Sunday and Time for Tom's Barn Collective

On our way home last weekend from Damascus, VA, I spotted this little barn on the side of the road. Since I was driving there was no "Barn Alert " shouted.The two farmers were so nice to me and told me all about the place. My iPhone gave me a mean message that I had no more room for pictures, so I dragged out an old point and shoot. I did not know it but there was something wrong with it and it was blurring the sides of my pictures. The farmers gave me their names and addresses and I was going  to let them now when I posted the photos, but I lost the little sheet of paper. I just hope they kept theirs and will look anyway.

 This is the farmhouse and the pen and shed are where they raise the baby cows and then sell them to the farmer across the road who raises and then sells them.

 The full barn is used for hay and the hay loft is just odds and ends of stuff.

I was interested the size of the beams. The men told me the place was built in the 1920's.

Back of barn and a little shed.
I am so sorry this photo of the farmers came out so poorly...still I wanted to share it. The gentleman on the left was the farmer, and the other gentleman was his friend and helper.

I know Buddy got tired of me yapping with the guys. He had just finished an ultra marathon, and all he wanted to do was go home and hit the bed. 

Be sure to go and visit Tom's Barn Collective.
