I snap a picture of the “Far Out Farms” barn every time we go by, because I never know when it’s going to collapse. It’s looking somewhat frail these days.

Frank Maveety added the creative roofing when he owned the farm back in the 1970s. And if you were around in those days, you know the farm really WAS far out.

Leave memories of Far Out Farms – that you can talk about, that is – in the comments below.

A lifelong resident of the Old Mission Peninsula, Jane grew up on a cherry farm (Johnson Farms), married the boy next door (Tim Boursaw), and raised two kids there (Will and Marissa). Her 35-year career as a photojournalist includes bylines with the New York Times and Ladies' Home Journal, and interviews with Tom Hanks and Julia Roberts. But she loves writing about the OMP most of all.
