Living in an Authentic Farmhouse


bf topper

After meeting in college Michael and Sara Jo, both artists, married in 2009.  They shared a dream of owning a historic farmhouse in the country as a creative space for their art and design studio. So in May of 2014 the Floyds jumped at the chance to start a new adventure together when they purchased an 1893 “fixer upper” farmhouse and barn on acreage in beautiful rural Kansas. They named the shabby little farm Bryarton Farm as an alliteration. Briar = the beautiful untamed Kansas prairie, the letters A R T at the heart of the name represented that God wired both of them as artists, and Ton = to save this forgotten piece of America’s heritage they knew would take a TON of work. Bryarton seemed to spell out their dream perfectly.

“We love going for family walks down our country dirt road and envisioning our little farm as it must have been over 123 years ago


The blog BryartonFarm.com is a blend of all of the Floyd’s passions: art, design, and historic preservation. Their relationship with Jesus Christ and each other are the catalysts for their artistic creations. It will share what it is like to live on a fixer upper farm and all the things you can do to bring out the hidden potential in any home. The Floyd family hopes to encourage and inspire you to, “do it yourself!” A lot of hard work and love goes into everything they do. Don’t miss all the hiccups, adventures, and great design ideas that this artsy little family shares on BryartonFarm.com.

Camdyn “Cami” Grace Floyd is five. Her role on Bryarton Farm is spreading sunshine with her sweet spirit and precious smile. She loves to ride her pony and “help” her mommy and daddy around the farm.


Avonlee “Avee” Rose Floyd is two. She’s half sweetheart & half stinker. We wouldn’t have her any other way. She may look like a baby doll, but Rosie Posey makes life on Bryarton Farm like a glass of apple cider. Sweet with a tangy kick! #theteriffictwos

We are so blessed by God to be entrusted with the care of these beautiful girls. Life on our little farm is sweet!
