A woman recently wrote to an online forum to tell the story of how her parents forbade her to buy the family farm. They said she was too irresponsible to manage the burden, but she went behind their backs and brought it back to life.
The woman wrote, “I’m 35. I’m the middle child of eight. I was raised on a farm, which is also the family’s business.”
“If anyone has ever lived on a farm, then you know it’s practically a 24-hour job. I absolutely wanted no part of it, which is why I’m practically the ‘black sheep’ of the family,” she added. “I was a rebellious teenager, and it caused a lot of strain on my relationship with my parents.”
Her grandparents owned the family farm. They moved into her parent’s house due to their age and health. Her brother and wife were meant to buy the farm but moved into a new home instead.
State of disrepair
The farmhouse was old. It needed a lot of work. The woman wanted to buy it, but her parents blocked the move. They told her she was too irresponsible for such an honor. Instead, the house sat empty.
Up for sale
Her grandparents put the land up for sale. She found out when a realtor friend asked if it was her family’s farm. She put in a secret cash offer, and it was accepted.
Over the course of two years, she had the farmhouse renovated. She even repurchased her grandparent’s horses from their neighbors. She didn’t tell her family, including her grandparents, during that time.
It was her Grandpa’s birthday. He wanted to take a ride out to see the old farm. He hadn’t been there in a few years and wanted to take a trip down memory lane.
Tears of joy
As the whole family approached the farm, her grandparents saw the restored house and the horses. The look of joy and surprise on their faces was incredible. However, it was short-lived.
They were furious When her parents realized she was the new owner. They accused her of having no respect for them because she’d gone behind their backs.
Her grandparents were delighted that she’d restored the farm. They told her parents off for their reaction. Now, they spend a lot of time on the farm with the woman, which is causing tension with her parents.
Was she right to buy the farm?
Her parents were upset. She heard from her brother that she had been removed from the will until she apologized. However, she’s standing firm. She wrote to an online forum to ask if she’d made the right call.
The internet responded
One poster said, “You bought it fair and square, and your parents are just mad they couldn’t control both you and your grandparents. I’m glad you got the house and the horses back!”
While another commented, “The worst part is that your parents would rather have seen it go to complete strangers than see you have it. This way, it can stay in the family for another generation and hopefully future generations to come.”
