People have been asking lately where we came up with the name, Black Acre Farm, and the answer really goes back to my husband's law school days. As a student of law Justin became accustomed to hearing the term "blackacre." Used in common law, jurisdictions, and in legal contracts it sits as a placeholder name for fictional estates of land. Even though our farm is far from fictional (most of the time) it is a way to pay homage to Justin's years in law school. He always joked that he wanted a "real" farm or ranch named Black Acre, so now that we have one I think he may be pondering the old adage, "be careful what you wish for, it may come true!"
On another name note. We still have not came up with names for the new kids. There are three boys and a girl. One girl and boy were born on April Fool's Day. We are in search of the right names. Please let us know your ideas. To sweeten the deal, whoever comes up with the winning names I will send them a bar of our goat milk soap.
Teacher. Student. Mother. Daughter. Sister. Wife. Farmer (well... I try).
