The search for our farm started one sunny day when Megan, Thaddeus and John sat out in the bed of John’s truck and daydreamed about finding property for the three of them to grow on. Years later, that dream was realized when we purchased Blackbroom Farm.
So many of our original dreams have come true here over our first 6 years on the property… but many of them have had to be postponed or changed as life happened, most dramatically due to the unexpected death of John’s partner due to cancer 4 years ago. We lost a lot of him that year, too.
On March 14, 2018, John died after a brief hospitalization due to COPD. His obituary is published here. Every structure on our land has his mark on it, and we cannot look around without remembering how much he contributed to our dream of living here. We had so many more dreams that won’t ever be, and we miss him so, so much.
Love you, Dad.
