151 years ago this year, my Great-Great Grandfather, Jacob Wells Easton left Kentucky in search of fertile ground for his new homestead. His expedition found unclaimed property deep in a valley amidst the rolling hills and hollows and glistening waters of northeastern Lawrence County. My original deed reflects the transfer of property from the US Goverment to Jacob Wells Easton. After his death the property passed to my Great Grandfather Joseph, then on to my Grandparents Everett and Minnie Easton. After their passing, I begged for a chance to carry on the legacy. I have called the farm my home for 21 years now, since 1994. Mockingbird Hill was named by my Grandmother, for the melodic tunes heard throughout the homestead. The valley echoes memories of the Easton clan and the tough times faced throughout the past 150 also brings smiles to our faces as we continue to gather and reminiscence of wonderful times spent together at THE FARM.

Our Shoppe, Mockingbird Hill, reflects the diversity of the Farm by offering items created by found objects throughout the land...creek stone benches, natural log bird houses, grapevine wreaths & trees, Lucky Stone ornaments, Gourd Birdhouses, pot-pourri and drift wood creations. Rustic & natural goods are also complimented by cast iron, copper & glass, agates, and a variety of home-sewn and hand crafted or painted items by my friends and family. Our menagerie of these creations merges with an eclectic collection of goodes for the home & garden. Stop in and meet the family: Sis-in-Law Jenell Stout (Brad), folks Fred & Lavedia Stout and possibly one of my sisters Valeri Sweeney or Veta Goucher.
