Country Life, Home, and Decor


Personal Stories About Moving To and Living in, the Country

in Farm Land is a small, growing, and diverse  community. People send email everyday from all parts of the USA and Canada. Some live on a working farm, others a hobby farm and even others with just a small lot in a big city who want to garden, raise a few chickens or redo their homes in country decor.

While some are asking for advice others  offer their specialty and assistance as a guest article or free resources to this country living community.

Currently we have four contributing authors - only two with their life story (as related to their move to a farm) listed below.

  • Laura Childs - Your Primary Author/Editor
  • Marianna Severson - Regular Contributor 
    (as well as Owner of Serenity Lane Hand Milled Soaps).
  • Linda Parker - Has a great garden on a rural lot that keeps her in vegetables and beautiful flowers year round. On occasion sends in recipes and ideas for articles.
  • Dagny Musclow - Decorator Extraordinaire! When I've run out of home decorating ideas, I turn to Dagny and her mother Janis for primitive inspiration.
  • Eric Kleinoder - Who'll be building our country home this summer and will let me document every step over on another site called Log Home Today.
  • Richard Koster - Who has taught me more about living authentically (even if I don't agree with him all the time) and who knows his stuff when it comes to farming, country land, and excavation.
  • David and Lucille Burke - Who have shown me that you can accept love and blessings from others without feeling heavily obligated in return. David and Lucille own and operate weekly rentals from a gorgeous house on the lake in Ontario
