Warre Hive old store pvc load limit and an old barn interior

Annie Upshure and the Catholic Worker Movement helped to establish an aura of Peace Farms throughout Appalachia in the 1970's.

We took some time to audibly check on the Warre hive and figured out the maximum load limit for 3 inch PVC pipes in a Toyota sedan.

Anna took some great photos of an old Appalachian barn that amount to some nice homesteading eye candy.

Anna Hess and Mark Hamilton enjoy homesteading in the heart of rural Appalachia. They support their lifestyle with a chicken waterer they make and sell at Avian Aqua Miser.com.
