Farm & Food Friday

Happy May Day!

Did anyone get over to the Triangle Farm Tour last week? I didn’t; I’m doing my own “farm stay”. Actually, I’m home in East Texas and we are not a working farm, but I am enjoying seeing my Aunt Sue’s Gelbvieh, Charolais and Angus cattle across the road…does that count as a “farm stay”? ūüôā

If you missed the tour last weekend, you can still head out to Goat Lady Dairy and two other farms in the area for their open farm day this weekend. Enjoy!
