Hello!  My name is Nancy, and I have never blogged before, but I want to begin sharing the story of the hobby farm I am building with my husband, Joe.  We have named it “Bluestem Pond Farm” because we intend to:

  1. Make it into a small working hobby farm
  2. Plant the fields with native prairie grasses, such as  Big Bluestem
  3. Create a farm pond and stock it with fish

We started with about 7 acres of soybean field on a rolling terrain bordered by a Michigan forest and a two-lane highway.  Follow our blog to see how this dream of ours develops.

  1. Hi Nancy:
    It looks like your home will be a craftsman or arts and crafts style. If it is I’d be happy to put a link to your blog on mine at http://www.artsandcraftsbungalow.com on my house blogs page. Many people buy older & homes & fix them up but it’s a nice change to see someone building this style. You can email me at susanlgreig {{{at}}}} gmail.com to let me know.

      Hi, Susan! I took a brief look at your blog and will want to take some time and read it in depth as soon as I get some time. Thanks for finding mine and commenting. I love the Arts & Crafts bungalow style also and since we already had the land, we worked up the basic design we wanted and had an architect draw it up in detail. I did not understand the level of detail until it began to come together and I saw it for myself, for instance the beautiful woodwork details. I’ll show more of that after we move in and begin decorating. It’s fine to add a link to my blog.

    I’m so glad you found me because that led me to finding you! Looks like this might be a fun place to hang out. At least a few extra hours in the day would be nice though… 😉

    This is really a very nice blog. My wife and I lived in Michigan four years. We live in southwest Idaho now (Boise). The winters here hold nowhere near the beauty.

      Wow, Kenton, I am honored that you like my blog! I read all your posts and love your stories. I was actually born in Boise although I was only there for a year while my father was a doctor at the army base there. I’d love to visit Idaho and find the house where I spent my infancy.

  7. Glad to meet you, Nancy!

    Dear Inkplume, that was so flattering and nice of you to nominate me. Thank you!

  10. One of the reasons I am following you is that one day I dream of owning a working farm. I never thought about it being a hobby farm. I am excited about reading what you encounter.

    How have I not read you before since I read about 3/4 of the blogs you follow? I will get to know you better now.
