Yesterday we took the leap we've been wanting to make since November. Or longer.
We bought the farm we've been renting since autumn.
It's finally ours. Our. Farm.
First step? Taking down the satellite dishes. Of course.
And then? It's time to paint and rip out some walls.
We're so happy!
(And in case you're wondering, the "bought the farm" jokes just don't get old around here.)
Now all we need is a name for this magical place. Any suggestions?

Wonderful! I hear a sigh of relief in your voice. It may not have been nice to wait so long, but for me it’s been comforting to know that it has taken you a while to buy your own place. I keep thinking we are running out of time. But really there is more time. My kids are young still and will have plenty of time to be in open and play outside with a garden and chickens. Manifest right?!
Manifest Farm. Karma Farm. Peaceful Acres.
wow, that’s so great!! Congratulations!
Congratulations. My daughter and I are drinking in your beautiful pictures. It’s a lovely place. I hope someday we find the perfect place as well. A name? Hmmm……How about Red Acres Farm?
I’m so excited for you guys! Congratulations. I like Karma Farm, too.
Congratulations and all happy wishes! 🙂
Wolf acres (obvs)
I’m a bit hung up on the acres part:) congratulations to your family!! Enjoy your new (no longer rented) home!!
Congratulations! How exciting!
Big hugs! sending you some love and a pat on the back, job well done, dream accomplished!
Congrats! A dream that has come real! What about “Life-field”?
Homestead Hills..Anytime you get a chance to call the perfect place for you and your family Home..go for it!
i just started following your blog and i LOVE it!!! can’t wait to read more.
Awesome! Congratulations! That’s so exciting. We don’t have a farm, but we have our own garden, plan on getting honeybees and fruit trees next year… maybe chickens? We’ll see. I think about what to call it, just in case. I joke about “Crazy Acres” or “Crazy Curry Acres.” 🙂 I personally think something with the word “homestead” would be nice for me, but since you DO live on a farm… I dunno! There’s a place near us called Good Karma Farma, which I think is neat. If you want it to be an extension of Lusa you could work that in there as well. Have fun!
Awesome!! Congratulations!! How about The Pack or The Homerange? I thinking of Wolf ecology since your last name is Wolf.
What a beautiful place, you are so blessed. I love those misty hills. Wishing you much peace and joy in your home.
Congrats! What about Lusa Lane Farm, Sweet Thyme Farm, Dreamfield Farm?
The possibilities are as endless as your imagination!
Congratulations! I can only imagine how happy you must feel right now.
Congratulations! I wish you all the very best of health and happiness!
Lovely to hear some exciting news 🙂
Congratulations. It’s really beautiful and so easy to absorb how special this land is from your words and photos. How about Misty Morning(s) Farm? Sounds magical.
I’m so thrilled for you and your family! Congratulations!
We used to live on 10 acres in SW colorado on a ranch. We called it the Westgard Ranch. But it often turned into the Westgard Wanch. =) So, what about the Wolf Wanch. =) Just kidding.
So living vicariously through you!
Congratulations! how about…Flourish Farm…?
Sweet thing. Can’t imagine something like that though, the biggest purchase I made so far was a washing machine… we grow, right?
Can’t wait to read about the name but I think that’s not the first thing to do, mh?
Congratulations! From the snippets you’ve shared, it seems like it’s been a long road with many ups and downs. What a happy ending… and a beautiful farm! So excited for your family 🙂
I’ve seen a darling chicken coop with a satalite dish as the roof… if you are looking to re-purpose. It was on pinterest but I’m not finding the link. Happy farming!
Congratulations Rachel! 🙂
