Someone so special...

...can never be forgotten.


It will be the little things

that we will remember,

the quiet moments,

the smiles, the laughter.

And although it may seem

hard right now,

it will be the memories

of these little things

that help to push

away the pain

and bring the smiles

back again.


With Loving Memories of our very Special Friend. :)

Hilltop Farm May swap meet

Posted on May 18, 2010 at 8:30 AM Comments comments (0)

We had another swap this past Saturday May 15th. First we want to thank all of the people who came. Sad to say it wasn't as good as the January swap. There was a decent turnout but not nearly as many people showed up this time. There were several people who posted they would be there but never came. We are planning future swaps to be held at the Dunnellon, Florida TRACTOR SUPPLY COMPANY store. The first swap will take place on Saturday June 26th from 9:00am to 2:00pm. If this swap goes well we may be having monthly swaps. 


We are Planning another swap at Hilltop Farm on Saturday November 13th 2010.

Newberry, Fla. Swap Meet/Sale

Posted on September 13, 2009 at 5:57 PM Comments comments (2)

Sept.12th, 2009 I attended a Swap Meet in Newberry Florida. I had a great time and met several wonderful people. We are planning to host a Swap Meet in January at our farm. I went with the idea that I was going to observe and learn as much as I could as I want our Swap Meet to be very successful. I will be attending more Swap Meets until ours comes up.

Here are some pictures of the Newberry Swap Meet/Sale:



Nifty-Chicken from BackYardChickens.com has graciously allowed us to use BackYardChickens.com for the event to be held on January 16th, 2010 at 9AM - till the cows come home. Also he is sending a BackYardChickens.com banner for us to use. Here's hoping we have a great turn out.
