I’m sure ya’ll are wondering , “Why Mortal Farms?”. Well, the truth is we moved to our forever home 3 years ago and have seriously been struggling on what to name our “Homestead”. We tried to fit in and go the local route of choosing a name however we went through dozens of local sounding names but none of them seemed to fit us.
When we first moved into our 100 year old farm house we couldn’t have guessed what we had in our own back yard.. You dream of treasure buried in the yard? We found broken headstones, still might find more. We have found 3 headstones dating back to the 1800s, crazy right!?
We live close to the cemetery, I mean we can literally see it from our front porch. Word is the original owner was the care taker or undertaker. Some might be spooked by the prospect, we found something inspiring about that task. Inevitable and slightly offputting. It allowed us to see how similar that task is to our own.
MORTAL FARMS. I’ve always liked the name, however I was a little skeptical about putting it out there. Embrace and cherish life, it is finite. Mortal Farms, uniquely us!
Our family farm is here to help!
