old barn

Share your barn stories. Do you have a barn you are proud of? Would you like to show it off to the world? Here is the place you can do just that.

Talk about all the hard work that went into building or restoring it. Share your tips with others who are building or restoring a barn. Maybe you learned something crucial that would be helpful to others. Feel free to share. It helps everyone to learn what others have done.

Maybe you have some fond memories of an old barn. Did you build hay forts in the loft of an old barn? Did you swing from the old ropes in a barn? Maybe you spent time in the middle of the night helping the family cow deliver her calf. Whatever your story is feel free to share it.

You will be helping to keep our farm tradition alive. Think of it as starting a time capsule. Your story will be around for future generations to learn from.

Speaking of a time capsule, do you know of an old barn that no longer exists? Do you have pictures of that barn. While the barn itself may be gone, you can help it live on if you give it a place to live on the web.

Upload your old barn photos and share your stories of that old barn with your neighbors around the world. The same is true for old barns that still stand. Ensure that they will live on forever by giving them their own page in history.
