What a great time of the year. I love the season change, the Great Pumpkin and watching the leaves swirl around in the wind. You are probably wondering what caskets have in common with Goebel Hill Farm. As I’ve mentioned before, the barn had seen better days when we bought the farm back in 2008. When we arrived it was packed with stuff inside, outside, and under the side shed. TONS……OF…..STUFF. In retrospect, I think all that stuff actually helped keep the barn standing. It couldn’t move!
Barn at Goebel Hill Farm in 2008
We spent several years recycling and finding new homes for all of the treasures hidden in the side shed. We found a Lister diesel engine, which now powers a restored tugboat and a John Deere diesel engine that is now back home inside a vintage John Deere tractor. There was a set of mysterious car parts stacked to the ceiling that turned out to be the complete body of a 1948 Buick Roadmaster, and the infamous 1956 Buick Wagon snuggled right up next to the barn. You can read more about that here. The list goes on!
