Thoughts from the Farmhouse

  • Hesitant Excitement . . . and other news.

    Hickory View Farms has been talked about, dreamed about and in the works for quite some time.  Now that we have formed an LLC, filed all the necessary paperwork, spent hours creating a website and finally launching it just a few days ago . . . the fleeting thoughts, dreams, visions and imaginations have become real.  We are both extremely excited about our new endeavor.  We are happy to announce that we now have Burger Patties and there are many other future plans in store.
