This is our fourth visit and it feels like we are coming home. As always we learn so much from you both. The food was fabulous and delious - just like every other visit. Thank you both for your kindness towards us and your patience with our children. They look forward to coming here as much as we do.

Thanks so much! We all had a great time! The girls really enjoyed everything including help with the "chores". The smiles on their faces are precious memories for me - Thank you! I especially enjoyed our trail ride. Looking forward to coming again.
Your place is wonderful.

Thanks for showing us a great time. It was more then I expected. We really loved the alpacas. Ward and Barb are wonderful hosts. Wonderful meals. I loved seeing my grandchildren having fun and learning so much.

We would like to thank you much for our lovely stay at CornerStone Farm. Thank you for the extra touches to help us celebrate our 20th anniversary. We loved everything from the room, the delicious meals and of course the animals. What a blessing to see the two-week old calf and recently born donkey. My favorites were the 2 white baby goats. Thank you for this wonderful, relaxing, experience.
We loved it!

We had an AMAZING time. I'm not sure what we enjoyed the most -- spending time with all the critters or getting to know you and Ward. The land, the animals, the farm, the house, the experiences, your cooking, your hospitality, your kindness, your knowledge and passion about the animals and your farm -- I could easily go on and on! -- ALL of it made our stay an experience we will never forget. From the moment we arrived and the birthday cake you gave me that night, to our drive home with the remaining cake you packed with forks and napkins -- it was a wonderful and heartfelt experience that went beyond staying at a typical bed & breakfast. Thanks to you, Ward and all the animals (and Justin) for giving me the best birthday imaginable. Much love, ~ Mary ~

We really enjoyed our walk on the trails. It was an interesting weekend. It was good hearing someone saying how good God is. I love to hear God's praises.

Thank you Barbara and Ward for letting for letting us fish in your pond. And thank you for letting us help with the farm chores. We had a great time. I also like making soap and doing pony ride.

Another great stay at a wonderful place! Thanks Barb and Ward.

Dani--- ---------------------------__---------------------------Custom August 2008
A house is just a house. A farm is just a farm. Seen one donkey, cow, goat, sheep, seen em all. At least that is what I thought until I spent the weekend at CornerStone with Ward and Barb. You have added a uniqueness and sincere love for what you have that makes others fall in love with "farm life" God has given you such a wonderful ministry & it is awesome watching you serve. Thank you!

Robin--- ---------------------------__---------------------------Custom August 2008
Unique! A lovely place with great hosts.

Jean--- ---------------------------__---------------------------Custom August 2008
Wow!! This was so much fun. I had never milked a goat or any animal for that matter. Making cheese and I could eat it too- WOW! This was an awesome retret getaway. Thank you for opening your home and yourhearts to me. I greatly enjoyed your company. This was so fun. Thank you,

Linda--- ---------------------------__---------------------------Custom August 2008
This surprise women's retreat scheduled by you and Dani was a perfect way to end my Summer. Seeing God's love in your service to us & His animal creatures touched on the theme of our weekend. leadership service. Thank you and all you do. Back to school I go ....!

Alyssa--- ---------------------------__---------------------------Custom August 2008
Barb, I had a wonderful time learning and seeing all your wonderful farm animals. The animals were hilarious to a good ole city girl like me. I loved watching those crazy bucks and experiencing the whole milking procedure. WOW, what a really nice farm! Thanks for being so kind and patient as we asked a million questions. Take care and hope to see you again. God is amazing.

Stephanie--- ---------------------------__----------------------Custom August 2008
We had a short stay here but it was very relaxing and enjoyable. The farm is beautiful and your home warm and inviting. The food we shared together at your table was delicious and nourishing. With hope and the good Lord willing, we will see you again at another time. Thank you!

Grayson & Jan--- ---------------------------__-------------Traveler Plus August 2008
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The food, the animals, the scenary - it couldn't have been better. what a wonderful, relaxing vacation. I finally got the chance to experience the Nigerian Dwarf goats first hand and they were even more friendly and beautiful than I expected. Now I know I some of my own! We loved the horseback riding, helping with the goats, making cheese, visiting Ward's nature center, the bonfire ...You made us feel very welcome. Rusty vows to come back and catch that elusive bass! Thank you so much! We will miss the baby goats!

Hi, Barbara & Ward!
This is just a short note to let you know that we made it home to Germany safely. The stay at your farm was definitly the highlight of our vacation to the US - all family members agree on this and it is very rare that all four of us agree one something :-) We enjoyed your company and the beautiful house, loved the animals and the delicious and generous meals you prepared! We wish you all the best, greetings from Germany - Maybe you have any use for the enclosed pictures...

We loved everything and had a wonderful time. Victoria thinks Nikki is the best horse & she loves Tiny Tim & the baby donkey & white goat Amaria (sp?). Wonderful food. Miss Barbara and Mr. Ward were very kind & patient teaching Victoria all about farm life. victoria loved the white donkey nobby who made funny noises. Very peaceful and quit. Send me pictures of the goats, horses and donkeys!

We had a wonderful time, so much to see and learn. With the mentorship, we got a lot of info for the future for our own hobby farm we want. Ward and Barb are excellent teachers. We are grateful for your kindness and opening your home to us. We had a ball. The food was so good, what a menu! We will come again for sure.

I LOVE the goats, keep their names. - Casey

What a blessing you all have been in our lives. Thank you for opening your home and sharing your farm knowledge with us. To have the opportunity to explore livestock farming through your mentorship program was priceless. We each came away from your program more informed about the animals (no more flashcards) we're interested in ... many, many thanks. we'll miss you all and your special animals!

Dear Barb: I just wanted to write and thank you again for welcoming us into your beautiful home. You really have a lot of work to do there and you do an excellent job. We had the best time.. I am still sore from the horseback riding but would do it again. I loved all the animals... I am glad we took pictures... we will remember our stay there with fond memories and hope to be able to visit again. You yourself made the visit special. Take care of yourself. I hope you get some free time to yourself too. You deserve it. With kindest regards

The food was amazing, I think I gained 10 pounds. I'm a city boy, my wife grew up in the country. She fell in love with the horses, I fell in love with the goats, and my son LOVED the cats and dogs. It was truely an extrodinary experience. Barbara and Ward opened their home and hearts to us, answered our questions, took care of us,and still had time to run the farm. Truely special people, the perfect getaway my family needed. The sunset, the birds, the chickens - everything we hoped it would be and evenmore. They shared God's love, God's beauty and naturewith us as if we were family. We loved this stay so much, we hope to come again and make it an annual event, as long as they allow us to come. Last but not least, my son was the happiest he's been in a long time. Special wonderful place. Thank you so much.

Haran, Roberta and Matthew -------------------------------- Farmer - April 2008

Thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality. Thank you especially for giving us the incredible experience of witnessing the birth of Medallion's babies (goat). Although we were scared at first and didn't know what to expect, it turned out to be one of the most memorable moments of our lives! What a miracle! Thank you!

Tara and Chris ------------------------------------------- Traveler Plus - April 2008

We learned so much from your farm mentorship program. I'm so blessed to know that the Lord made our paths cross together. David and Jack liked learning about the poultry and playing with the baby goats. I liked all the hands-on experience with the goats, sheep, donkeys and horse. One day I hope to setup our own farm therapy program for children with God's help. Let's hope hay will be in abundance! Well it's almost time for dinner ~ a real treat each night. And I know you won't mind if we come to the table smelling like goat! Ha! God bless your ministry!

Dear Barbara and Ward, What a fantastic experience. Kaitlyn has been showing her book to anyone that will look! I know you were very busy when we left with the new born goat! What a great way to end our weekend. Kaitlyn is telling everyone that was her favorite part! Holding as she puts it a 3 second old goat!! Thanks again for a trip Kaitlyn will not forget. - email-

Wow, what a fantastic mother/daughter trip. Kaitlynand I really had a wonderful time and look forward to coming back. We felt like a real farmhand. Thanks so much for making Kaitlyn's dreams come true. - Guest book -

This experience was just what we were looking for. It was relaxing for the adults and great fun for the girls. We all had a wonderful time. Ward was a terrific host. We're sorry we missed meeting Barb (in Alaska).

Cami & Jared Creason ------------------------------------- Farmhand - March 2008

This farm is SO fun! And the baby goats are really cute! I really liked collecting eggs! I hopw we can come back! We had a huge bon-fire. The bon-fire was really fun!!!!!

Cassi Creason (age6)------------------------- --------------- Farmhand - March 2008

Barb and Ward, Thank you both for your hospitality & friendship. I love coming here, even though my mind is so pree-occupied with work related matters. The food was out of this world! I appreciated the Valentine card & treat. Be assured, should I receive the opportunity again to Assist CCN, I will be requesting to stay "at the farm".

Barb and Ward, Romans 5:17! What a joy it is to come and relax at this place that is"covered" by Him! Thank you, thank you, thank you for such hospitality, kindness and welcoming love. Until Next time may He keep you safe and in His abundant love and grace.
