I had a great time at the Dreamfield Farms shows last weekend near Union Springs Alabama. Having known two of the owners Van Wadsworth and Christy Crow for several years from JR and FJ shows, I have watched DFF grow from an idea to a great reality. Dreamfield Farms is a fantastic place to spend a day in the great outdoors. They have farm animals, old fashioned country games, a huge corn maze, tractors, hay rides, pig races, great food, and sometimes even music from yours truly. I love doing shows there.
