Name That Farm

July 22, 2010

We’ve been needing to name our farm. I’ll mention it every so often “Hey, what should we call the farm?” Then somehow the conversation immediately turns to politics or interior design: waste of time? or what should we have for lunch.

So, the two names in the running, currently, are:

Fiddlehead Creek Farm


Bourbon Wood Farm

Marinate on those for a minute….

Fiddlehead Creek came from our (over) abundance of fiddlehead ferns out by the creek.

Bourbon Wood is after our rare heritage turkeys that we’re breeding, Bourbon Reds. They were kind of the launching point for us to start thinking more about homesteading and food production. We didn’t want to call it Bourbon Red Farm, because then it would seem like we just raised turkeys. After a lighthearted words-mash-up with friends over wine, the favorite was Bourbon Wood.

Thoughts? Other name ideas?

    Bourbon Wood Farm just seems to roll of the tongue better to me.

    Lots of Bourbon Wood votes! That’s my favorite… and was my idea, so I’m biased. I’d love to have one or two other great names to choose from. Bourbon Wood is the first one we’ve really liked. Maybe another wine induced namestorm roundtable is in order.

    Bourbon Wood sounds stately and firm. Fiddlehead sounds playful and fun. Both seem great. However, I vote for another wine roundtable!

    I finally have one:

    Combine both of your names: JaredDeanna, then take one ‘red a’ out of it….

    Jadeann Farm

    (Ja as in Ja Rule, i.e. play by your own rules, which you both do. Deann as in Paula Deen, i.e. kind, sweet and welcoming, which you both are.)

    I think the name is apropos.

      Before I got to your phonetic explanation, I totally read it as: JAY-dee-en
      Which I kind of like too.
