Lithuanian Farm

Lithuania Guest House

Outside a small village near Klaipeda, Lithuania is a working farm that appears to be of a bygone era.  The scene is idyllic, almost make believe, like stepping back in time.

A small stream cuts through the low-lying pastures that feed the one horse and one cow.  The fields are cultivated with a plow pulled by the horse.  The cow provides milk.  The surrounding forests provide wood for fencing, building and wood burning stove.  Toilets are modern flush toilets, but in out-buildings.  The main house has electricity and a satellite dish on the roof.

The photo shows the aging couples’ guest house for relatives and visitors.

Thought for the Day:  Farming looks mighty easy when your plow is a pencil and you’re a thousand miles from a cornfield.                                        Dwight D. Eisenhower
