My hubby has had this deer camp since 76...he named it Pin Oak Farm because he planted Pin Oak trees that were no bigger than your thumb(about 50 trees)...they now are over 25 to 35 ft tall and some taller....he wanted them to line the driveway someday...well they grew but he never put the driveway where the trees are...anyway...that is how the farm got its name..The farm is 88.25 acres...we married in 09 and he had moved here from Atlanta full time just months before we married. Now it isn't used only as a deer camp anymore...now it is our home...it is such a beautiful place. Here is a pic of it during the snow last year. This pic is of two of his three grown children...as we played on the hill in the snow with some of the pin oak trees in the background.

Havent decided on a name yet...still tossin' around the ones I posted a few weeks ago. I started to build a blog and came up with the name
"Simple Suburban Pleasures" since I am all about the simple things in life and I live in the suburbs etc.
Hmmm...so many variations of things- guess I'll have to continue to ponder ....

We named our little farm "Leap of Faith Farm" because it took a huge leap of faith to pick up everything and move 7 years ago and follow our dream :)

Our little farm is called "Black Sheep Horse Ranch or "Black Sheep Farm" (easier for my lil girl to say). We are the black sheep of both our families, actually bought the land during a family fued with some inlaws in a rush to get our horses off thier land..lol. Feud is over now and we are all one big happy family again. Looking back though, I know there is a reason for everything and I would not give up our little 4.5 acre piece of heaven for the world!

Our farm (at my MIL's) is named after my hubby's family. Caler Farms. My hubby actually calls our home Rushton Farm after some of the original owners.

I named our farm Wild Woman Farm, because It is just me that does anything with it. I raise sheep and pigs, I sell yarn I make from my sheep and alpacas. I sell milk I make from my goats and I also sell Herbal things, and laundry soap. I decided to name it this because my mother-in-law says I run around like a wild woman trying to get everything done!

Unofficially, we're Dragon's Moor Farm. The first winter we were here was so wet we felt like we'd moved to a swamp. Moor seemed so much more poetic than Dragon's Swamp Farm.

We named ours Country Fried Acres. Not sure why we named it that in the first place, but after the house burned, its seems fitting. I am considering renaming it. Opinions, thoughts, suggestions?

I have been tossing around names and ideas for the past year or so. I live in the suburbs, on just shy of an acre. I have raised vegetable beds, flower beds, chickens for eggs and will soon be adding a few rabbits. I've posted on this thread before, but just yesterday while at work I made a phone call to one of our suppliers. I am fairly friendly with the girl who answers the phone there. When she answered the phone, I said "Hi Stacy, its Laurie at Emerald Island...How are you today?" Well- her response was classic.... She said "oh you know....
Livin the Dream" (she was being sarcastic, as she is not always the most upbeat person). HOWEVER... when those words left her mouth...
LIVIN THE DREAM..it just hit home with me. What better name for my little "farm" than "Livin the Dream"?I think I might actually go with it. Its just so literal, and indicative of all that I do on my little homestead. When I am home I am "livin the dream" so why not make it official?
What do y'all think?

We have a piece of land in Northern Wyoming near the Big Horns where we are slowly building our retirement home.
As a joke I started calling it The Dirt Ranch because all we seem to do is try to tame the dirt that blows. Now it has stuck.

(Teresa Sue... we can see Heart Mountain from our place.)

I'm new here and haven't introduced myself yet (just joined today) I'll get to that eventually, but I couldn't resist this topic! Plus I'm just getting my feet wet for now....

Our place is a small homestead in the middle of the woods. So we named our farm Bosky Acres. Bosky means wooded. We found the name from a Shakespeare quote. "and with each end of thy blue bow dost crown my bosky acres and my unshrubbed down" The Tempest act four scene one.

Cream of the Crop Barrel and Trail Horses....The name is self explanatory....but the fact that many of our horses are palomino doesn't hurt either.

We named our farm/homestead when we were living on 32 acres. We now only have a little less than an acre where we live and about 3 acres by the river across from my MIL. Anyway, we named our farm 4m farm. Our last name is Morgan and there are 4 of us in the family.

I named my place Wild Rose Ranch. I was riding my horse along the rode one day and saw some wild roses and had an ah ha moment about using it for my business name. I always dreamed about having a ranch named that one day and drew pictures of the big log over hanging gateway the drive way would have and how it would say Wild rose Ranch. Well now I do have a little ranch with a sign like that! and there are wild roses all over the place on it. Dreams do come true.

Ours is Luce Ends Farm. For a couple of reasons... 1) our last name is Luce. And 2) there are always tons of loose ends around here that need tying up! :)

This is fascinating! My soon-to-be husband and I are in the middle of trying to buy a little tiny farm and I was just thinking of what we would name it, today. God permitting, once it's ours, I will come up with a name and I will let y'all know! In the mean time, I will be getting some brainstorming by reading what everyone else has written!

I love all of these stories so much. I can't wait to get my own farm so that I can have my very own space special enough to give a name to. Thank you so much for all the stories.

We agreed on the name MiaBella Farm for a few reasons: Mia Bella in Italian means My Beautiful, I grew up with a young man born in Italy who used to call me Mia Bella Michelle and we loved each other very much in a plutonic way of course. He passed away in his sleep at a very young age (early 30's) from pancreas failure. He did not know he was I'll. Also, I feel that the land we purchased is very beautiful, so the name MiaBella Farm (My Beautiful Farm) came to be. When I was raising dairy goats, I would tell folks it was where beautiful goats lived :-)

Oh and I named the first buck born here Emidio after my friend who passed. I felt it was appropriate at the time.

Our numbers are few; 21 chickens, two rooster, six peacocks, a goose, two cats, two rabbits, a dog and myself. It was starting to sound like a nice little farm coming together. Yet....The kids and my mother kept saying, " Meet you back at the ranch." I now live on Kelden Ranch.

Don't be sorry that it's over... Be glad that it happened.

We named our farm Gentle Hearth Farm
Gentle meaning kind,
synonymous...peaceful
Hearth meaning home so Gentle Hearth meaning peaceful kind home.
We had chickens and I hope to get more, we make maple syrup on our farm.

I love that this thread is three years old!

I very much enjoyed reading y'alls stories. I hope we come up with a good name for our little neck of the woods (that we just bought one month ago). We're getting into the agriculture business, too. We're just trying to find our niche! A niche, a name, and a lot of hard work!

Happy Trails to All!
