Kiparoo Farm

I visited Kiparoo Farm, the cottage business of Annie Kelley. She raises over 100 sheep near Adamstown and uses all their wool for her lustrous yarn. I've known Annie for over 15 years and she's such an inspiration. If I ever feel like I have so much to do, I think of Annie, up at 4:00 a.m. to milk her cows and care for her sheep, fix a tractor or manure spreader, make hay, dye yarn, pull up a cow with milk fever, and whatever else her busy day calls for. She's one of those people who need only 4 hours of sleep. I don't now how she does it, but it's hard to feel sorry for oneself when her day is so packed with farmstuff.

Casper welcomes you to Kiparoo Farm.

Annie's driveway is 1 mile long. Folks complain about how rough it is. Not used to gravel roads, I guess. It's just all part of the adventure!

The porch just outside of Annie's studio/shop. Sit a spell and knit!

Annie tucks still lifes into various places on the farm.

I pass this falley downey barn on the way home and wish someone with lots of money would rescue it. There aren't many stone barns left in our area. It may be beyond repair now.

I call this the 'Ghost Truck', shrouded in mystery.

Yesterday, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she can be a
youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views.
I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it with someone!
