Barley's farm, known as Windover Farm to Twolegs, is a Twoleg nest at the edge of WindClan territory in the forest territories.[3] Barley is the main inhabitant of the farm, but, over the moons, the farm has seen other cats come and go.[4] Barley's farm is used as a place for ThunderClan cats to rest on their journey to Highstones and for as a place for cats to seek shelter in times of crisis.[2][5]

DescriptionEdit

Barley's farm is located on the edge of WindClan territory,[3] where cows, dogs, horses and sheep live.[6] Nearby there is a broken Twoleg nest.[7] The barn on the farm is usually referred to as Barley's Barn.[8] Inside, there is a warm smell of hay[9] and the place is crawling with mice and rats.[10] Barley and Ravenpaw sleep on top of a large haystack, and to get water, they climb up onto the roof and drink from the gutter.[6] Two elderly Twolegs live nearby, occasionally leaving food such as tuna or milk out for the two loners, although the cats claim to like the mice better.[6] The farm, including the barn, survived the destruction that occurred when a new Thunderpath was built,[11] that had forced the Clans into exile.
