What’s In a Name?

We have finally settled on a name for the mini-farm. I'm sure you're all relieved. We were looking for something that exemplified our lofty goals, characterized the place where the farm was, what we were trying to do, and of course, that we liked. You can imagine that we’ve been thinking about it for a while. We live in the Brazos River Plain, in the state of Texas, we do horses, chickens, the garden when it is up and running in the fall, and there has been talk of pygmy goats appearing in the pasture. I swear…they just appear!

So not just any name would do and as you know from past posts, I suck at naming things.

We kicked around names like:

River Bend Mini-Farm
Small Wonder Farm (which I loved, but was outvoted on)
Lone Star Mini-Farm
And all sorts of things based on everything under the sun.

And we still kept coming back to the one that seems to have stuck….

Lazy M Farm

Its a play on our last name, as well as the character of the farm.
The gardens will still be called Jessamine Gardens since the garden concept has only moved, not changed. Now I just have to get them rebuilt!
