Early Oxford Farmhouse 1900s
We stopped by the side of the road to snap photographs ... absolutely surprised and delighted to come across such wonderful, well-preserved old buildings.
The farm was occupied and obviously operational so we didn't stop for long ... but will probably, as time permits, return to chat with the owner. We did notice that it was a 'Stewardship Farm' - a designation meaning that the farm was being exceptionally well run and cared for -- and as evidenced by this one structure alone -- we could agree.
The thing that was most touching to my husband about this particular farmhouse, was that, old as it was, unoccupied as it was, the wreath by the store, was still intact.
Touching indeed ...
