A Field of Crosses

Last year at the Celebrate Easter Event, guests were invited to bring a cross in remembrance of a loved one that had passed away during the awful pandemic.  We "planted" them in the corn field south of the farmstead. 

Many people brought crosses, most in size from 10 inches in height to about 3 feet in height.  There were home-made crosses and purchased crosses, wooden crosses, metal crosses, pipe crosses, a cross decorated with flowers, even a cross made from pvc pipe.  Some guests included their loved one's name, others were simple and plain.  All crosses brought a humble memory, much love, and even a tear to some who got to see them.

The Field of Crosses will take place again this Easter, 2022.  Guests, neighbors, friends, .... anyone, can bring a cross in memory of a loved one.  Bring them when you come to the event, or anytime beginning in April.  There will be a basket under the oak tree by the main lane.  Simply put your cross in the basket and Buell's will "plant" the crosses.

Crosses will remain in the field until the end of April.  At that time they can be picked up.  If you want your cross back, please include your phone number so Buells can call you at the end of the month to arrange for a pick-up time.

Thank you!                                                                                                                    Click here to go back to the home page.
