A Look at Our Wildlife and Natural Beauty
At Briar Creek Farm, we have 52 1/2 acres of woods and pastures. Along with the beautiful scenery, we also get wild animals coming to enjoy the bountiful goodness that surrounds us.
Creek After Snowfall
The main creek on the property usually flows calmly from the spring-fed pond, connecting to yet another creek that flows near the north edge of the property. There are granite waterfalls here and there that make for a peaceful sound as the water trickles over the stone. However, after the sun warmed the snow that fell heavily the night before, the creek swelled and rushed violently over the rocks.

There seems to be quite a few coyote in the area. Almost every evening we can hear the howling in the distance as if there are several talking to each other. Here, however, only one is spotted.
