The Farm

Dairy Barn Farm 2On a farm in South Carolina, lives a menagerie of critters. Miss Lola, the Pig, rides herd over Ollie and Barney and Cahoots. Clarence and the Pointers Sister Pigs, run themselves.

There is a horse named “Big Head” who hangs out over the barn. There are roosters and fish and orchards of cherry, apple and peach trees.

It is always night and day, day and night, at The Farm. None of the animals ever dies. They have lived through the ages and will continue to do so.

Why? You ask.

Because Miss Lola and her Critters, are kind, loving and playful. They see the good in things … even people. They would never think of labeling anyone or making fun of someone because they have a pig nose, carry a few more pork butts than necessary, or sing off-key.

At The Farm, all things are good. The air is sweet. Life is kind.
