down on the farm

This past weekend our dairy farmers hosted an “open farm,” and we were fortunate enough to be able to attend the festivities.  We toured the farm, met the cows who give us our milk, were entertained by chickens and cats, climbed trees, and enjoyed homemade ice cream and cheese.  It made me long more than ever for a place of our own; made me wonder for the millionth time if there’s a farm in our future.  But most of all it made me thankful: that we live in this place, near these wonderful farmers, that we have access to these nourishing foods, that we can share these days with wonderful friends.  Wherever we may end up someday, this place is just right for us right now.
