A Few Farms Along the Way
I finally found a supplier of non-gmo grain in Elba, about 30 miles away. Today I went there to get a load of feed for the hens and grain for LaFonda while I milk her. On the return I thought I would take a short cut. Being significantly directionally challenged, I got a bit lost, naturally. But I eventually found my way home and got to see some new farms on the way.
I absolutely love the cow art on this farm's buildings.
That is one tall silo.
Iconic big red barn with black and white cows.
A doe and fawn ran across the road into a field. (They sure run a lot faster than cows!)
I want a wire corn crib with a metal roof on our farm!
In September 2008, we dived into our dream of creating a small, sustainable farm. Neither of us has previous farming experience, but we have enthusiasm and many ideas for this little 10-acre farmstead.
