April Country Living….featuring our farm

It seems like a life time since the staff from Country Living Magazine was here to shoot photographs of the farm.  It is hard to believe it takes almost a year from start to publication.  We are so excited to finally see the finished product.  The experience was great and the Country Living crew was wonderful and to put rumors to rest….what you see is what you get.  All the photos featured my own relics.  Other than what I have changed since they were here (which I have to admit is quite a bit) the magazine shows the farm as it really is!

I have never wanted to be in a magazine, because I did things to make myself happy, not necessarily to be in style or to be recognized.  Since starting the Rural Society Sales, I felt that the publicity would  bring new faces to the farm and in turn be good for all my dealer friends who participate in the sale.  This is a real farm and I am glad that so many others get a chance to enjoy it, even if it is only through the photographs in Country Living.  It all started with my friend Lisa Maughmer, owner of Urban Farmhouse taking a picture during a party of a soapstone sink  I purchased from her (a picture of which is in the magazine) and posting it on her blog.  Country Living editor, Natalie Warady, saw it, contacted her and everything snowballed from there.

Lili Diallo was our stylist for the shoot and she has written a book, Details, that features her interior design work, much of which you might recognize from her time at Domino magazine.
