Abandoned Farm Site

 I came upon this abandoned farm site the other day while out for a drive.  There is a silo but no barn. There is an old house, some bins and a few other little buildings.  I hate seeing these places abandoned and this is such a pretty one with the pond!








I would have loved to explore this old house but didn't dare go any farther.




Thanks for stopping!  See you next time

It's sad to see such abandoned sites. The old wooden house has a lot of charm though. Great shots!

The land is really nice! The fall colors are beautiful. The house looks like it's been there quite a long time, but some of the other structures look newer.

That first shot is so prety with the water...love the others - perfect rural scene, in spite of the abandonment.

It's excellent! It looks still useful - someone should put it to work.

I would love checking out those places up close, but like you, I wouldn't dare.

Danielle said...

Oh I agree...it saddens me a little to see these places abandoned...however, as a photographer...they certainly provide great photo opportunities ;)

It IS sad to see a farm abandoned in any state, particularly one that isn't ancient and falling down. The colors you captured are truly beautiful.

TexWisGirl said...

your photos are beautiful, though, even if the subject is rather sad.

Olive Cooper said...

Beautiful..keep it up and do not get shot. xo olive

Buttons said...

Oh Fantastic photos a true photo op for sure. It is so beautiful but makes me sad as a farmer wondering what happened to the farmers. B

It really is a shame it's abandoned. It sits in such a beautiful setting.
The shot with the reflection in the pond is beautiful!!
You got some great fall color shots too!

Mari said...

Such a pretty setting! It's sad to see it all abandoned.

Pat said...

What a shame to find it abandoned. It's a beautiful location.

Maple Lane said...

Beautiful photos. Like you, I would like to see more.

Kathy said...

And it's in such a beautiful setting! How could someone give this up?

So sad to see. My paternal grandparents farm was burned down by the owner who purchased it. He could not afford it and thought he could get the insurance money by burning it down. Have a great weekend Barb. janice

Debbie said...

some old, some new...beautiful landscape and colors!!

now where's your sense of adventure, i didn't see a no trespassing sign!! hehe

Terri Buster said...

So sad that it is abandoned..maybe someone will put the silos and pole barn to good use one day soon.

Tricia Hays said...

I, too, would love to explore these ole abandoned places, but I just can't bring myself to trespass, either... safer that way! =)
Beautiful captures

Nancy Claeys said...

Love the block silos, especially with the top still on it!

Disney Princess Combo said...

You really make it appear so easy along with your presentation however I to find this matter to be actually something which I feel I would by no means understand. It sort of feels too complex and very extensive for me. I am looking ahead on your next submit, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

What a nice place. I love silohs. My husband grew up on a dairy farm. He's Dad retired from it in 1985. The place seems a bit forgotten these days. We were there last weekend and toured the barn and out buildings. They had to tear down their siloh as it was crumbling. It makes you wonder what the story was for a place like this.

Celestina Marie said...

Hi Barb, Great photos of such a serene area. It would be fun to explore the little building. But, what would one find inside? Maybe a batch of critters not happy for any visitors perhaps.
Hugs, CM
