To Explain the Name

May 22, 2011

That was the original name of this farm. Like very near all family farms the land was divided, subdivided, sold off, developed, neglected, and abused. Now there are only 16 acres remaining. My grandfather’s brother even had to sell the E during the Great Depression to make ends meet. (No, not really, I don’t think he had bought the land yet and of course selling the E is prohibited).

To be precise: 16.19 acres, or 705,120 square feet. It’s not much, but it’s usually best to start small.

    Wilde is a Dutch name, so someone in your family probably came from Holland.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving comments. Your blog looks great so far! Don’t hurt yourself in the hot sun!
