Acreage anyone?

Posted Monday, April 25, 2011, at 9:25 AM

On the drive to Holstien, Iowa yesterday to celebrate Easter with my family we passed no less than 4 acreages for sale along County Rd. M27 and just as many if not more, that look to be abandoned. I don't get it. I really don't. I am still looking for my acreage. It is always in the forefront of my mind. I would like to find an American Foursquare house and a big barn and plenty of land to have a horse, goat, maybe chickens, a dog or two, lots of cats, and maybe a cow and a pig too. It breaks my heart to see these abandoned farmsteads. I don't know their story but I assume that they were left to a family that chose not to farm as their ancestors did. Maybe the land is tied up in a will dispute. Whatever the reason, it makes my heart sad and I will never allow that to happen to my parent's farm. So please if you have an acreage sitting unoccupied in the Spencer area...give me a call, lets work a deal. My farm roots are calling to me.

There's a one up for auction by Gillette Grove in a couple weeks. It's on a paved road too.

My name is Leah Cauthron. I was born and raised on a farm near Cushing, Iowa. My parents still live there. I am a conservative Catholic. I have been married to Randy for 22 years and we have six children. I received my degree in Criminal Justice from Eastern Wyoming College and as a mother of six and a daycare mom, I have used probable cause, reasonable doubt, search and seizure, Miranda rights, submission, arrest and interrogation technique as a part of my daily life. I can also shoot a .357 magnum with deadly accuracy. I have lots of opinions on lots of things. I am not an expert on anything but I read a lot and will gladly share that information if I find it accurate. I have a sarcastic nature and for the most part I have pretty thick skin and most things don't bother me for long. I don't like mudslinging or name calling so keep negativity of the personal nature to yourself. Enjoy and welcome to my opinion.
