We dig old, primitive.  We haven't slept in a bed or put our britches in a dresser, that isn't at least 100 years older than we are, since we were kids.  It only gets older from there.

Our farm was homesteaded in 1840, our log home 1845, the Stone Barn 1850. We live, understand and  

collect primitive country Americana.

Early 1900's industrial, gas station and barn lighting. We specialize in original genuine vintage porcelain enamel fixtures. As with most all our offerings, they simply  just don't make them anymore.

If it seems like quality country primitives are getting increasingly difficult to find, you're right. We travel everywhere mostly east of the Big Muddy, collecting old. Old paint, old pegged, old Americana.


Life  is too short. New only makes it predictably shorter.

Stone Barn Farms, and the Finke barn - 1850



The Dog Trot Cabin was originally constructed as a single pen in 1845. Around 1848, the second larger pen was added and the cabin was turned into a Dog Trot..

Homesteaded in 1840, Stone Barn Farms is a working hay farm. Our current project is restoring an 1855 German Hewn Log Smokehouse. Of course we hired a German Shepard to guard it.
