View of Farmhouse from Trail
March 18, 2011, that’s when we departed Vinton, Iowa and headed to Cincinnati, Ohio for our first project. We drove 10 long hours to get to Cincinnati. When we arrived at Gorman Heritage Farm in Evendale we were introduced to everyone. Staff welcomed us to their farm and their farmhouse, where we would be living for the next 6 weeks. They showed us around the house then afterwards we had dinner with them. They are some nice people. German Heritage Farm staff gave us an orientation of what we are going to be working on. During the orientation Maple 4 introduced ourselves to the staff and told them where we are from. After the orientation, they showed us around the farm to see the different animals.

Our first week here at the farmhouse, everybody seemed to get along even though we had little personal space. Everybody is taking good care of the farmhouse. It is a real nice place. The house is 175 years old. It has four bedrooms and one bathroom for the 10 people on our team. They have rain barrels outside to catch the rain as well. The types of animals they have are horses, chickens, roosters, ducks, and cows. Soon they will be getting more animals like pigs and stuff like that.

We are going on two weeks staying at the farmhouse and it is going great!
