Maple Valley/Eclectic Culture Farm Sold


Recommended Posts

I was wondering how this family was doing and it turns out that last fall they sold their farm. This "explanation" doesn't make much sense to me though:

I have received many kind emails from you asking why we sold the farm. It is not real deep but in a way I guess it is. We still are following God and it was really miraculous how it sold. **We did not plan to sell the farm but we told God that if He wanted us to sell it we would because it was His anyways. But, we asked Him to just about come down and practically tell us too :). Well, you can figure out the rest... After our 5 years of literal blood, sweat and many tears with some of the most precious times of our lives, God choose to reward us for our hard work is the best way I can say it. It was not an easy decision but it was a good decision. *** The really cool GOD aspect of this entire transaction is that we got to KEEP a part of Maple Valley Farm for us with some of the best of the buildings *** I feel really blessed by this and feel it was another gift straight from God xo



It also looks like they moved to another house (still an old farmhouse) that's now getting called the Maple Valley Homestead. It's not clear how they're supporting themselves now.

I wondered that too. I used to follow Ang when they first bought the farm. At first the blog was fascinating. It was really interesting how the adapted to the off grid lifestyle. They seemed to be more for self sufficiency and a more simple lifestyle and at one point were going to join an Amish church. Then all of a sudden the Amish were kicked into touch, the blog monetised and they were really pushing their farm to be commercial. Their whole outlook seemed to change overnight. I lost interest then, but checked in occasionally and they had completely changed. I wonder if money was tight and a developer gave them an offer they couldn't refuse for the land. Bet their Amish neighbours won't be pleased if they have.

      My sweet pup was diagnosed with a brain tumor in September. She passed away in my arms on Thanksgiving morning. It all happened so fast. She didn't want to eat anything the day before, but prior to that was ok. Knew it was near time and had booked an appointment to take her next week. However, she decided for me. She was only 8 and really was one of the best dogs. She never met a stranger, human or dog. Life isn't the same without her.

      I made my first Granny Square! After nearly 30 years of knitting and crocheting this was a project I never did. Until now! I needed something to do with my rest of very colourful yarn and now I am very happy. I need to try different needles with my yarns but I think I found something nice for the future.
      I needed only 3 different youtube videos until I found a person who explained the concept slowly and repetitive and with words I can understand. I hate when these tutorials make me feel dumb.

      Someone please remind me to buy peanut butter. Seriously, I have been meaning to get some for at least three weeks, and everytime I remember, the shops are already closed!

      You know what I hate most about subtle racism? The gaslighting. Stop cosplaying as a nice person and say it with your chest.

      We had to put our 14 year old dachshund, Trinket, down today.  She was fine Thursday, but by mid-morning yesterday, it was apparent that something was really wrong,  She had zero energy, lost her appetite and began walking into corners.  By morning I knew it was time for her to have her final visit to the vet.  She had lost about a pound and a half recently.  RIP, Trinket!

      Horrific! A 6 year old boy was murdered, and mother severly injured, in a hate crime in Chicago. Reports say they are both Palestinian Muslims and were specifically targeted because of that. Thankfully the man who did it is in custody 
      This is pure evil
