Re: “A rural row over Maple View Farm

Really? Is this a legitimate concern?

You bought a big house next to a WORKING FARM. Did Bob promise to shut down his operation whenever you want to go birdwatching by the pond, or re-read Walden in the thicket while the rest of us work? I think you should be happy to hear the tractor pulling the hayride several times per week; the alternative might be the tractor tilling the land, or mowing silage, or harvesting corn. Quelle horreur!

And please tell me how a yoga class is disturbing. I've been to a few classes (not at the Ag center) and they've all been exceptionally quiet. Unless it's a class for 300, how could that possibly be a nuisance? Don't try whining about the students driving up for the class - if you're that bothered by cars several hundred yards from your estate, you must be positively enraged by all those with the gall to drive along Dairyland Road, which is nearly equidistant (if not closer).

I hope the wind doesn't shift and blow some of that "money smell" in your direction; you'll be in court demanding that Bob outfit the cows with diapers or follow them around with a pooper-scooper.

I've been out to the Ag Center multiple times and accompanied my niece and nephew through the classrooms, barnyard and hayride. It's a fantastic place, and they have every right to conduct business. If the Green Rise residents have nothing better to complain about, Bob is within his rights to rip the muffler off his tractor, pull it right up to the property line and rev the engine all day. Or start hog farming.

You people obviously have too much time and money on your hands. Go volunteer somewhere and you'll be safe from the mean old tractor and children's singing.

(Regarding the solar array, I'm guessing it will be part of an educational project since it's on the Ag Center property. Bob has plenty of land along Dairyland Rd where it could be much, much bigger. Given the recent oil disaster, I applaud Bob and Allison for exploring alternative energy.)
