Living The Dream In A Weaver Barns’ Farmhouse! Life At Old World Garden Farms

It’s hard to believe that a little over 15 months ago, Jim and Mary Competti didn’t have a single Weaver Barns’ structure on their property. But fast forward to today, and they have a Weaver-built house, garage, pavilion and garden shed to boot!

The Weaver Barns Cedarbrook home and Timber Ridge Pavilion at Old World Garden Farms

“We joke all the time that we might as well just hang a Weaver Barns sign at our entrance!,” says Mary, “But we simply love the look and quality of everything they have built here.”

And “here” for Mary and Jim is a little 3 acre farm in Nashport, Ohio they named Old World Garden Farms. For them, the “farm” has been a way to slow down, downsize, and enjoy life.

Back In 2010, seeking a way to become more responsible for the food on their table and to simplify the typical life of 2 full time professionals balancing careers and a family of four – they decided to create a space and place to grow their own food.

The front entrance to the Competti’s Cedarbrook home

Starting from scratch, they worked together to convert the overgrown 3 acre field into a self-sustaining farm that could feed their family and their soul. They wanted to grow their own food without the use of chemicals or pesticides. Most important, they vowed to always have fun in the process.

They now grow nearly 75% of their own food, raise a small flock of chickens, maintain two bee hives, a small orchard and a fledgling vineyard, In the process they have used reclaimed and recycled materials to build everything from their barn, chicken coop, compost bins and more.

In early 2012, they created a website (oldworldgardenfarms.com) to document the entire process. Much to their shock, the website quickly took off. It has now grown to over 30,000,000 visitors and 160,000 followers from over 226 countries around the globe.

“I don’t think that either of us ever imagined it would grow and become what it has,” says Jim, “but I think it just goes to show you how many people really want to go back to living a more simple and fulfilling life.”

Their ultimate goal was to move from their surburban house and build a house and life at the farm. And it late 2015, they started to put those wheels in motion.

“We had been looking at all kinds of houses and options but just couldn’t find what we wanted. We knew we wanted to downsize and create something unique, and something that fit the farm and our life. And then fate stepped in,” says Mary.

“It was late October of 2015, and we were heading home from the farm one night, and Jim stopped at a store just up the road for gas. When he went in to pay, there happened to be a Weaver Barns brochure on the counter, and he loved the look of the house on the front cover. He came back out and showed it to me, and the next thing I knew we were heading up to Sugarcreek the following weekend to look at their models on site.”

As soon as we met everyone there and saw the barns, sheds and garages, it was over. We just really felt comfortable the minute we started working with them. I loved the fact that they could work with us to come up with a home that fit our needs. The house is only 1054 square feet, but we absolutely love every square inch. I think when we first started building, half of our friends and family thought we were crazy for downsizing so much. But honestly, it was the best thing we ever did!” Before we knew it, we went ahead with a Weaver garage to match.

The Compettis had Weaver barns complete the outside, and they finished the inside themselves. “We love to build and create as much as we can, and it was great working with someone who understood that,” said Jim.

This past year they added a Weaver Pavilion to the mix as well. “It was just the final thing that we needed at the farm, I loved their Pavilion from the moment I first saw it,” says Jim. “We love to live and enjoy the outdoors. We added a brick paver patio underneath, and it has become our outside home for the summer!

“We sit under the Pavilion almost every single night, and can’t believe how wonderful it finally feels to live here. It has become a ritual that at least once or twice a week someone stops to ask about it. I think for many people, they just really love the craftsmanship and attention to detail that Weaver takes in their buildings. We couldn’t be happier with life on our little farm!”

Overlooking The Valley Below – Lisa Stith’s Timber Lodge Home

Lisa Stith - Timber Lodge

Lisa Stith’s Timber Lodge Home

Lisa Stith’s Lively Acres property sits on 7 and 1/2 acres overlooking the rolling hills of the gorgeous Tuscarawas County valley below. One look from her wrap around porch, and it becomes obvious to see why she chose the spot for her Weaver Barns Timber Lodge home.

With its large windows and wide open porch space, the Timber Lodge home takes in all of the beauty of valley.

It also gives her a great view of her beloved animals. Lisa has chickens, cats, a dog, a donkey named Jill, and her trusty old mare Good-N-Lively, who the property is named after. It is easy to see that she loves her animals and the wildlife that surrounds her property. She has even become an avid supporter of the Monarch Butterfly.

Lisa Stith - Timber Lodge

Lisa’s Timber Lodge Kitchen

Her landscape is filled with plants that the traveling butterfly needs to survive. Each year, she helps to raise and release them in efforts to increase the population. “They are an amazing creature, they travel 3000 miles or more to Central Mexico and back, and need all the help they can get”, says Lisa.

Lisa has an incredibly interesting life. “I grew up on the cape of Massachusetts. My father was a professor at MIT in Cambridge, and growing up we had horses. I loved being around them.”

So after graduating college with a B.A. in French and Secondary Education, Lisa decided to pack up her car, and moved to Ohio for the opportunity to train and race horses. “I went to work and trained race horses at the Dover Fairgrounds. I lived out of my car for awhile, and then moved into a place at the fairgrounds. For 13 years I really lived day to day.”

lisa stith - Weaver Barns

She finally ended up purchasing the land that her Timber Lodge home now sites on. At first, she and her husband created a small little house on the property. After many years of living, she had bad water, and it was in need of some serious repairs. So a few years back, she began to think about building a more “permanent” home on the site.

“I had looked at options for awhile, and one day passed by Weaver Barns in Sugarcreek and noticed the Timber Lodge. After that, I just kept driving by over and over. Finally, I stopped one day and went through it, and just kept imagining living in the house. That is when I first went inside and talked to Jason.” (Weaver Barns Inside Sales Manager Jason Miller)

“I really enjoyed working with Jason, his creativity and ability to adapt really made this project happen.” She continued working on designs with Jason, creating the home that now overlooks the surrounding hills and valley.

The house was built in 2014. “It took Weaver a lot of work to get this house up”, says Lisa, “This hill wasn’t easy to build on. But they worked and worked and made it happen. John Hershberger (Weaver Barns Project Manager) always came up with an answer to whatever issue there might be.”

And so it became that Lisa and Lively Acres had her Timber Lodge home.

Once built, she didn’t stop there! She fell in love with the look of Weaver’s new Pavilion introduced last year. and added on at the end of her driveway to serve as beautiful carport.

Thank you so much Lisa for sharing your story and home with us! We wish you many, many years of continued happiness at Lively Acres! Here are some more photos taken at Lively Acres:

A Summertime Salsa Recipe From Weaver Barns!

It’s summertime – and that means it’s time for garden fresh tomatoes, peppers, onions and more. Here is a great salsa recipe to take advantage of summer’s bounty for the whole family.

salsa recipe

Nothing can beat the taste of fresh garden salsa in the summer

This recipe combines the flavors of all that fresh produce along with just enough spices to create a magnificent chunky salsa that can be used for dipping with tortilla chips, or using as a topping on grilled chicken, salads, and more.

The best part of all – it only takes minutes to prepare!

And no worries if you don’t have a garden – you can find all of these simple ingredients at your local farmer’s market or grocery store to take advantage of that fresh taste.

Ingredients:

10 roma tomatoes
2/3 cup onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp cumin
1/2 cup cilantro
the juice of 1 lime
1/2 tsp salt
1 jalapeno pepper, diced
1 poblano pepper, diced
(optional 1/2 tsp sugar)

salsa recipe

Pulse just a few times for chunky salsa

1. Wash and dry the tomatoes. Cut them in half and squeeze out the juice and seeds.  They don’t have to come completely out, as long as you get the majority your salsa won’t be too runny.

2. Place the tomatoes in a food processor. Pulse 4-6 times until the tomatoes reach a thick and chunky consistency.

3. Place all remaining ingredients into the food processor with the tomatoes.

4. Pulse 3-5 times until well combined, but still chunky.

5. Eat right away (it’s hard to resist), or place in the fridge for an hour to allow the flavors to meld even more. This can be stored in the fridge for up to 5 days.

Enjoy!
