How did the acres get Green?
It's not because we're a couple of rich folks moving from the city to the country. We're a teacher dad, homeschooling mom, and two young kids who had the opportunity to buy back part of a farm that used to be in the family. The original farmhouse was built in the 1920s by Charles and Blanche Green, pictured to the left, who are Byron's (that teacher dad guy) great-grandparents. The place was renovated in the 1980s and sits on 5.5 acres of the original farm. We'd been dreaming of owning land for about a year, so when we had the chance to buy a place that means so much to our family, we knew Green Acres was the place to be.
