Welcome to the Guffey Farm

This is a tribute of sorts to my sister. Not only is she a wife, mother, my sister and best friend but she is one of the hardest working women I know. She runs the Guffey Farm. It may be a little farm compared to some but she pours her heart and soul into it.

I talk to my sister daily. Usually by messenger via Facebook. Our conversation usually goes something like this. I send a random message about my blog or something and it’s followed by…..” sorry I was out feeding the goats, fixing something, or picking vegetables from the garden.”  Never a dull moment.

I don’t know of anything she doesn’t know how to do. Unless it’s something to do with computers! Ha-ha… I have to tease her. Seriously though she knows a lot and if she doesn’t she will figure it out. My Dad used to say between him and my Grandpa they knew everything. What he didn’t know his dad did. I feel the same way about my sister. If I don’t know I’m sure she does.

Let me stop myself because I can go on and on about how amazing my sister is!

The stars of the farmjeff and crystal

My beautiful sister Crystal and I have no idea who that man is. Just kidding that’s  the love of her life Jeff. ( some stories I could tell you about that one!) No, really he’s a good guy and a lot of fun to be around.

The garden. Or where crystal can be found when ignoring my messages! 🙂 This is where I get all my wonderful fresh okra, green beans, peppers, and chilies from. I had green chili sauce for a year. Need some more BTW.( Just a hint there for you) Best green sauce ever! She smokes the chilies herself.

Even though my sister never has a moment something doesn’t need to be done. You know you can always count on her in a time of need. Whether it be helping a stranded animal, offering food to someone in hard times, or just being there to listen. I can honestly say she is my best friend.

To Crystal,

I appreciate you and love you more than words can say. (Stop crying) 🙂

Love,

P

  1. It is good to see 2 sisters get along so well and it is a lovely living tribute to her and the way you feel about her. I lost my favorite sister in 2007 and we were very close I miss her her day but I still a few more sisters left but somehow the closeness isn’t the same. Hold on to what you have and be blessed with that. ❤ Your friend Red Sox Lady 35/LighthouseKat

  4. What a wonderful post about your sister Crystal. Love that “simpler” life where you grow much of your own food. Very fulfilling and a healthy lifestyle.

    And awesome to have her friendship and support to those around her, making the world a much better place! 🙂

  5. I love my sisters too. We are all very close even though we don’t live near each other. That’s why we started a blog together 🙂 Love these pics from the farm – the goats are the cutest!!
