For as long as I can remember, my Dad would gather big rocks from the pastures and hayfields and put them in piles all around the farm. He did this to prevent his farming equipment from getting damaged by running over them. Hence, one of the reasons Dad called the farm Rocky Top was because of all the rocks the farm seemed to grow.
In 2014 when we decided to build the Fire Pit, it was only natural that we use the rocks that the farm naturally provided. So all those years that Dad spent hour after hour picking up rocks came in handy for us when we built the Fire Pit. There is almost nothing better than sitting around the fire with family and friends and enjoying their company and making memories.
