the Hackstock Family Farm
A   V i s i t   i n   W i n t e r

Winter Displays Majesty in Special Places...

...Even Around Routine Things

Always Work to be Done, Even in Paradise...

...Getting Ready for Visitors

Welcoming Color, Even in the Snow

A Picture Postcard, Beside the Road

Whether Looking in...

...or Looking Out

Even the Ash Tree Seems Dignified...

...and the Woods Everywhere are a Magical Place

The Tractor is Patiently Waiting...

...and the Spreader Still Unused

The Apple Tree Shivers

A Fork at the Driveway Crest

Trees Dressed in Winter

The Swing Sits Idle

People Walk Together in the Snow... Do the Tiny Creatures

The Hackstock Family Farm

There are those who say that places have souls, just like the people who dwell within them. If that's true, then this is a place with a calm and restful soul and a joyous, welcoming heart. You can almost feel it waiting, patiently, for the next event to happen, to add the memory to the many others that already linger within. It is a place of character and dignity. A place of beauty.

"Beauty is in the eye of the beholder," as the popular cliche goes. But beauty is everywhere, particularly here, if you just take the time to see it.
