Rubbish Tuesday & The Barn Collective On Shaver's Farm Road

click on photos to enlarge
White Oak Tea Tavern
5690 Roanoke Road, Troutville
The Tea Tavern was once upon a time, circa 1783, the Cloyd House.

Not too far from the Tea Tavern is this:
On Shaver's Farm Road. Dalton turned up the bass in my mini-van to get all the cows attention. Apparently they are music lovers ;)
I have shown you this farm before HERE and HERE but both of those views were bovine-less!

Linking with Rubbish Tuesday which is a meme for the love of old things, not trash and The Barn Collective

  6. Two questions: Is the pub still operating? And what song was playing? This is a funny shot with your added musical background.

  7. The Tea Taver is a great name. Love the old building. The red doors are perfect. I never would have thought about turning up the music. I'm going to try that the next time one of those critters is trying to ignore me.

  9. At least they are not milking cows, or that bass might have frozen their milk. ;-) Love that building. I could move in there (if they let me).

  27. Gorgeous log cabin/tavern, and brilliant way to get the cattle's attention! I can't help but think of Gary Larson's "The Far Side" cartoons every time I see cows! :D

    Thanks for stopping by to comment on my RT post.

  34. Neat log building! And I've heard before that cows like music. We could probably make a list of their top ten, starting with Blue Moo-oon...
