the spinner’s farm

A SATURDAY IN THE OZARKS

A few weeks ago, my kids and I made our annual two hour trip to some friends of ours.  Why do my kids love going to their farm so much?  Could be that it’s on the CURRENT RIVER, close to BLUE SPRINGS.  Could be the fact that you cross the creek several times over the course of their 10 mile driveway that is “supposedly” a county road.  Or it could just be that it is one of the most fabulous places in the Ozarks. 

THE ROAD TO SPINNER’S FARM —- THIS IS THE BEST SECTION OF IT.  DON’T PLAN ON DRIVING A CAR, AS SOME SECTIONS ARE MORE LIKE A LOGGING ROAD (NOT TO MENTION STEEP)!

HERE IS ONE OF THE MANY LOW-WATER CROSSINGS ON BLAIR’S CREEK.  YOU CAN SEE OUR TRUCK IN THE BACKGROUND.

THE SPINNER’S DRIVEWAY.  ON THE RIGHT IS THE CHICKEN COOP; ON THE LEFT IS A TEN FOOT TALL WALL OF STRING BEANS THAT SURROUNDS ONE SIDE OF THEIR MASSIVE GARDEN.  SWORD FIGHTS ARE ALWAYS A FAVORITE PASTIME AT THE SPINNERS (Malachi Schierling & Christian Clingman battling it out).
