We did it so you could wake up, have some cof f ee, and make putting it through hell feel like heaven. Every. Single. Day.*Hydraulic dump bed is an optional feature.

Small Ship Cruising Done Perfectly. ® WHEN THE MOUNTAINS CALLED four years ago, the Spencer family answered.T h at’s when the winners of Country’s fi rst View from Our Place Contest moved to Montana. John and Monica Spencer dreamed of living out west and wanted to give their kids a childhood with the freedom to roam, and the chance to live in harmony with the land and grow up with the values of small-town America. And the move was an opportunity for Monica, an amateur photographer, to focus her lens on the wide-open spaces all around them. You’ll see her photos and read more about the family on page 22.Amber Mitchell is another reader who chased her dreams. Almost 30 years after a photo of an idyllic farm surrounded by glorious fall foliage captured her imagination, Amber fi nally saw it in person. On page 16, she recounts her journey to Vermont’s Sleepy Hollow Farm.As the leaves change, the acorns drop and we carry on beloved traditions, autumn becomes a time to think about the past year. If you’re planning the perfect Th anksgiving, ponder Field Editor J’Nel Wright’s advice on page 14. I’ll certainly keep it in mind when my family gathers on Turkey Day or for an afternoon of outdoor fun.

MAILBOXSHORTLY AFTER WE WED 51 years ago, I talked my husband into getting a calico kitten we named Penny. Reading Connie Thompson’s story “Pick Extra for Daisy” (June/July, page 64) put a big smile on my face. Like Daisy, Penny loved to eat sweet corn! Once, I came home from work to find that my husband and mom had left sticky corn all over the kitchen while preparing the corn for freezing. The last straw was when I saw Penny. She looked like a black, white and yellow balloon covered with sticky corn TWO ARTICLES IN THE June/July issue hit home with me, including the one on page 59 about a young man who restored the Farmall B tractor. I learned to drive tractors with a Farmall B, and starting at age 10 I raked thousands of acres of hay with it. The story on page 62 by Joanne Haverland also could have been about me. My dad didn’t have sons either. I was his “son.” He turned a herd of sheep over to me when I was 8. I took care of the lambs and sold them in the spring. And I herded stray cattle on my horse, Pet.

Pairing the season’s foliage with the train and its billowing steam was a match made in heaven for this photographer!Because the steam locomotive is due for a costly inspection, it isn’t running this fall. The Boone & Scenic Valley Railroad, based in Boone, is trying to raise funds to pay for it. If you would like to help save this piece of history, visit bsvrr.com for more information.

Here, we find a variety of apples—Ginger Gold, Crispin and Paula Red, to name a few. Other fruits like plums, grapes and pears are sold there as well. Maple products, pies, old-fashioned apple cider fry cakes and other treats are available to take home and devour.The cider mill has been around since about 1945. I enjoy going there on opening day and waiting in line with other locals. The weather is usually nice, and it’s so lovely to catch up with other folks. And the young ones delight in watching the apples travel up the conveyor belt on their way to being transformed into fresh cider.That’s how I bring in the autumn season, with a trip to our beloved cider mill, good tidings and a cup of cider in hand!WENDY SCHREINER Warsaw, New YorkA Farmer’s DaughterFRESH AIRAS I WALKED DOWN to the pasture to help my dad with some chores on an early foggy morning in October, I stopped to watch him walk through the gate. Dad paused for a minute so I could snap this photo of him.I was raised on this farm and have stood in front of this gate many times, but I never really stopped to enjoy the beauty or the company until this morning.My parents, Ted and Louella Neptune, were married for 56 years and farmed this land together until Mom passed away. Growing up here and working with my family every day taught me about responsibility and respect. When it is time for baling hay, picking corn, combining oats, tending cattle or doing daily chores, we work together as a team.My parents taught by example the importance of family. I’m so proud to have grown up in the country and to be the daughter of a farmer.PAMELA DAVIS New Concord, OhioSWEET TASTE OF FALLAPPLES: SEWICKLEY PHOTOGRAPHYCastile Cider Mill is open through November. facebook.com/castilecidermill12 COUNTRY-MAGAZINE.COM OCTOBER/NOVEMBER 2019 WE’VE GOT YOU COVEREDConnect on the nation’s largest networks, with coverage to 99% of the U.S. AWARDED BY J.D.

TURKEY: FIRST VECTOR TREND/SHUTTERSTOCKFRESH AIRIN OUR FAMILY, Thanksgiving dinner wasn’t dinner at all. It was preparing a lunch that was served at 1 p.m. to accommodate plans arranged with other families. Thanksgiving morning felt more like working a lunch rush at the local diner than a day of reflection and gratitude —until the year we declined an invitation from the standard crowd and hosted out- of-town guests.For our visitors, Thanksgiving wasn’t as much about schedules, formality, or turkey and fluffy mashed potatoes as it was about spending time together with no distractions from work or school.The day was filled with football, a Peanuts video marathon, fun board games, casual snacking, a walk around the neighborhood, and then even more casual dinner preparation. We presented the Thanksgiving meal with the setting sun, on a table adorned with candles, surrounded by the smiles of family and friends.As I watched the assembled crowd feast on the spread placed before them, I couldn’t help but relish the memories of the day. For the first time in a long time, I sat at a Thanksgiving table overcome with a sense of gratitude. The day had shown us our blessings: Good health, good fortune, the gift of time and cherished friendships. The lesson? It’s not about the food. The Thanksgiving menu can be anything from dry toast and popcorn to barbecued steaks and shrimp. It’s what you do with the day that gives it meaning. This year, it’s time to get out of the kitchen and serve up something really special. Quality family time is on the menu.J’NEL WRIGHT Sandy, UtahThanksgiving Grace ONE LUMP OR TWO?Briley, 6, serves a spot of “tea” to Meghan, 4, who isn’t impressed with the bug she found in her cup.KIRSTEN BERGER Friendship, Wisconsin PUMPKIN PICKERS My husband’s brother plants pumpkins at our farm every year, and he always needs help harvesting.

SLEEPY HOLLOW FARMROAD TRIPArt imitated life when I visited a Vermont landmark that I first saw in Country. BY AMBER MITCHELL Danbury, ConnecticutIT WAS OCTOBER. The harvest moon was creeping through the trees and rising to a magnificent glow. I was thrilled because in one week I would be in Vermont to see fall color. But this wasn’t just any trip. My goal was to find a farm that took my breath away 29 years ago when I was thumbing through the pages of my Country magazine.As a child I lived in Florida but dreamed of being at the base of the Rocky Mountains with valleys of wildflowers, or in a little historic New England village with its decorative church steeples, red barns and rolling farmland. On one trip through Country, I caught a glimpse of Sleepy Hollow Farm in Vermont. I was enchanted. I ripped out that page as the perfect inspiration for my ninth grade art class project. For the next week, the image of Sleepy Hollow Farm never left my mind.Fast-forward 15 years. I moved to Denver, Colorado, and woke up every morning gazing at the front range of the Rocky Mountains. Later, I got married and moved to Salt Lake City, Utah. It was surreal living at the base of the Wasatch Mountains. Those magazine scenes of majestic peaks, floral splendor and wandering moose became my playland. After 10 years we left the Rocky Mountains and moved to a small village in the rolling hills of New York. As I unpacked boxes, I came across my high school keepsakes, including my art picture of Sleepy Hollow Farm. I searched online for Vermont farms to see if I could find this one. I told my husband, Travis, the story of the picture, because now we lived just hours away. So he said, “Let’s go this fall.” Amber holds her original high school drawing of Sleepy Hollow Farm in front of the real farm that inspired it.16 COUNTRY-MAGAZINE.COM OCTOBER/NOVEMBER 2019 The day we left, I woke up like an excited child on Christmas. We drove to Vermont through lush green mountains and picturesque towns. A chance detour took us to Sugarbush Farm. We hiked the maple trail, finding a little chapel in the woods that had been built by the farmer’s son. After a maple and cheese tasting, we drove off with our bags filled with delicacies.Then we approached what I thought could be Sleepy Hollow Farm. It was so beautiful—just like the picture. We pulled off the road, and I gazed over the hillside. I’d waited 29 years to see it in person. As I took photos, a friendly man in a pickup truck said, “This farm gets photographed a lot.” He had built the pond on the farm 30 years earlier, a year before I drew my picture. I was delighted to meet someone who had touched the farm with his own artistry.After a few more minutes of viewing, it was time to leave. Turning around, we slowly drove back down the hill, taking in the sights and sounds one last time. With a smile in my heart, I felt so blessed to have my Country magazine vacation come to life. “I ripped out that page as the perfect inspiration for my ninth grade art class project.”PASTORAL PLACESIf rural scenery inspires you, add these iconic farms to your travel bucket list. Q JENNE FARM, VERMONTIn fall, when the sugar maples turn, photographers descend upon this idyllic 1813 farmstead near the town of Reading. The farm became famous in the 1950s when a photography class discovered it.Q MOULTON BARNS, WYOMINGWith the Tetons as its backdrop, the T.A. Moulton barn is a romantic symbol of the American West. Located in what is now Wyoming’s Grand Teton National Park, it’s one of two barns built by the Moulton brothers and probably the most photographed in the United States. nps.gov/grteQ D.H.

We stroll into the countryside in just a few steps. One of our favorite roads takes us past corn, hay and alfalfa fields and rustic, weathered barns. Friendly horses and milk cows wait at the fences for their owners to bring them a special treat, or for people like us to stop and pat them on the nose. A small creek crosses the road and winds its way down the valley. Giant cottonwood trees offer shade On a country stroll, we discovered that good deeds come back tenfold.BY RON EDGINGTON Snowflake, ArizonaLost and FoundBACKYARD BLESSINGSWORDS of WISDOM A well-spent day brings happy sleep. —Leonardo da Vinciand display vibrant colors as the season slowly changes to fall. As we walk, we often look down at the many animal tracks. The critters seem to prefer the ease of the road compared to traveling through plowed fields and crossing fences. The road goes nowhere, meandering lazily past farms for miles before it dead-ends. Nothing moves fast on this road—people go in and come out the same way.As we walked back home one beautiful fall day, we noticed a key on the road. We thought someone who lived nearby lost this key and would need it. We hung it on a fence where a deflated birthday balloon had settled. We hoped that eventually someone would spot their missing key.For the next few days we kept busy with our 2 acres. Although we don’t have a farm, it’s still continual work to keep the gardens watered and the weeds pulled. A week later, with a full day of outdoor chores ahead of us, we realized our shed key was missing. It wasn’t in its usual resting place in our mudroom. We searched and searched, but it was nowhere. We pulled out the spare key and went on with our work.One of the jokes between us, as aging seniors, is that it takes both of us to be a whole person. Our skills and physical abilities are perfectly complementary, each providing the missing attributes of the other. I have the long-term memory and my wife has the short-term memory for both of us.Several weeks later, a lightbulb went on. I don’t remember which of us thought of it first. What if we’d found our own key 5 miles down that country road? Could that have really happened? The next day, we went to see if the key was still on the fence. Luckily, the remnants of that colorful balloon helped us spot it. We took the key home for a test. Sure enough, it worked! We had lost and found our own key!I learned a lesson, too: If I have a handkerchief in my pocket when I leave the house, then a key (and likely loose change) may not come home with me. The mysterious key, tied to the fence, waits for its rightful owner to come claim it.20 COUNTRY-MAGAZINE.COM OCTOBER/NOVEMBER 2019 KRISTIN ALLENACROBATIC GYMNASTICSUSA HALL OF FAMEWhether you’re a world-class athlete or a weekend warrior, you can trust Tiger Balm for proven, pill-freepain relief.
