BARNS ARE SO CHARMING + PRACTICAL
I just love barns – ask my husband and his eyes will roll so far in the back of his head….with all the conversation lately about how the new baby boomers will be looking at home ownership in a simpler way, the barn style of living could REALLY catch on…
Yankee Barn Homes is a wonderful site to peruse – and they have an interesting contest, giving farmer’s markets the opportunity to win a barn….
See the details!
The below description of the contest details is taken directly from their site
“Yankee Barn Homes is giving away this 24-ft x 36-ft open air barn structure to a deserving farmers market!

Farmers markets are good for everyone. They support healthy lifestyles, make fresh, nutritious food available to more people, and preserve America’s rural landscapes. Yankee Barn Homes applauds farmers markets, which strengthen local and family farms, consumers, and communities.
The purpose of the Farmers Market Great Barn Giveaway is to celebrate our nation’s farmers markets’ commitment to local economic development and healthy living.
