Okay, we’re behind the times. Last Farm Standing on Buttermilk Hill has no promotional video.
But, is this cool or not?
It has a song. A song recorded on August 30, 2013.
Well, okay. The book doesn’t own it.
But the song surely will become the official one of Phil Hardberger Park Conservancy, supportive caretaker of the former farmland on which Max and Minnie Voelcker spared the trees shading walkers and runners in Phil Hardberger Park.
This is what the vocalist, Michele McMurry, wrote about “Last Farm in Town” on August 31:
Doug (McMurry) and I recorded this song, which he wrote as a tribute to Phil Hardberger Park and the rich roots of the Voelcker dairy farm. Doug was inspired by a book titled “Last Farm Standing on Buttermilk Hill,” written by friend and colleague, Gayle Brennan Spencer.
As you may know, Doug is very involved with parks as a director of the Phil Hardberger Park Conservancy and former chairman of the City of San Antonio Parks and Recreation Board.
The neat part was Doug playing my dad’s 1964 Martin (D28) guitar.
“The Last Farm in Town” by Doug and Michele McMurry…
Oh, and the photo in the video is the interior of Max and Minnie’s milking barn.
