We live in the country because we love the beauty that surrounds us, the animals, nature and beautiful sunsets.
While we somewhat knew what we were getting into when we moved next to a steer farmer we were not prepared for the harsh reality. It’s bad enough that the poor animals are treated so terrible but now the farmer has add a second grain dryer to his property. This new dryer is less than 100 yards away from our property and makes tremendous noise – I can hear the noise EVERYWHERE in my house and in my studio – which is destroying one of the other reasons I love living in the country – the peace and quiet. This is what we are being forced to put up with:
Besides the noise the farmer installed a huge light that shines so brightly you can’t see the stars. (to be fair he does not leave the light on all the time) And the dryer produces a pink corn dust that is EVERYWHERE! Our yard is pink, our house is pink, my car is pink. I’ve had to wash my car three times a week for the last three weeks as I am afraid that the pink dust will destroy the finish. (these are mild photos compared to how it looks sometimes)
The constant noise sets everyone on edge – our white dogs have been fighting more and the chickens are laying less. Now I am not a farmer but as a dog owner I know that there are ordinances against their barking and I have to wonder what are my rights as a resident? Is there any protection for us against this constant noise and corn dust pollution?
Trying to think happy thoughts 😉 – till next time craft on!
