~Eagle Fork Farm~

I don't know the age of this wonderful old home, at Eagle Fork Farm. I do know it was a stop on the Underground Railroad. I imagine the age must be close to 200 years. The hitching posts still stand. One is seen in the photo. The other is on the opposite side of the gate. Each Autumn, the owners of Eagle Fork Farm have hayrides and other activities and offer beautiful Mums and delightful Pumpkins. A giant maze is cut into one of the cornfields, in the shape of the St Louis Cardinals logo.
I have memories of Xanti at the age of 18 months, choosing her Jack 'o Lantern pumpkin, at Eagle Fork Farm.
This is where we find our Mums, each fall. When our youngest daughter married, in September 1996, we decorated with over 100 Mums from Eagle Fork, for the wedding and reception.
We stopped by here, Sunday afternoon, on our return from Branson. The farm is located just north of Wentzville Missouri, on Hwy 61. If you're in the area, during fall weekends, stop by, you will enjoy!

These are just a few of the sights you will see at Eagle Fork Farm.

Fall and Hallowe'en items are displayed on pieces once used, at the farm. This photo shows what was once the laundry. Notice the chimney, where water was heated for laundry. This building was also used for preserving meat. There are recipes, still visible on these walls.

This photo was taken in a building that was once a chicken house. I love browsing these buildings.

To the left, in this photo, you see the former chicken house.

Mary, while setting up displays, said she hoped to find bittersweet. Wouldn't it look great twined around the sign?

I just simply had to have this sign from Eagle Fork. Sweet Autumn, my sentiment, exactly! I couldn't wait to set it in the window on the back porch!

More Hallowe'en decor arrived in the mail, while we were away. I love this banner from Donna at The Decorated House. She also made the cute tag, on the cloche.
Thank you for visiting our favorite "punkin patch". Just imagine the stories this farm home and out buildings could tell. Remember, if you're in our area, on Saturday or Sunday, this fall, stop by Eagle Fork.
