To the Back Forty – Naomi Brotherton
To the Back Forty
Framed 23 x 30”
In my youth, though we lived in town, we frequently visited various farms and I became aware that nearly every farm had a “Back Forty” where you were warned to keep the gate closed. It seemed to be an important area as the farmer would so often refer to it. It is still a mystery to me why it seemed to be hallowed ground.
