Greetings from Northwestern Pennsylvania, we are Joseph and Alethea Burkett of Old State Farms, a small family owned and operated maple farm situated on the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains in Emlenton, Pennsylvania. We are blessed with six wonderful children. Jude is our energetic 12 year old and is always ready to help his daddy at a moment’s notice. His new love his hunting and tracking anything in the woods. He target shoots with his bow everyday. Once he can put 4 arrows in a 3 inch circle from 20 yards, he’s allowed to head to the woods to find a real target. Cecilia (11) is our mother in training, as soon as any of the younger kids asks for help she takes it upon herself to tell them what to do. Magdalene who turns 10 this Christmas spends most of her time playing with her siblings and cooking in the kitchen with mom. Lawrence Joseph, born in April of 2008, basically spends his time trying to keep up with the older 3. Helena (4) is a tornado on two feet, my dad calls her “spark plug” because she has so much energy. Augustine Paul was born June 29th, 2012. He’s basically a tank on two legs.
