Green Valley...

    This Dutch gambrel barn is still part of an active dairy farm

Tucked between two high bluffs, with the Green River and a perfect sports car road snaking through it, Green Valley has always been a haven for dairy and horse farms. I remember it flooding a lot when I was a child, but a flood-control dam built in 1962 pretty much put a stop to river flooding. I picked strawberries one summer very near this barn; the narrow valley is still home to dairy barns and vintage farmhouses, but the strawberry farms are long gone.

Linking up today with the Barn Collective today.

    1. I love how the windows give the barn a sense of scale... it's a very large barn, and the owners definitely know the way to protect a barn: keep a good roof on it.

  3. Super looking barn. Very similar to some in this area---white with green roof. Our little farm we bought over 50 yrs ago used to be a Strawberry farm and the one now in Stanwood was a Strawberry farm also.

    1. We bought our place 30+ years ago, and I got the vintage farmhouse on five acres, but no barn. I'm surrounded by little farms that all have a barn, and it's my only regret about the property we chose. I (and my horses) would have loved to have had a barn!
