Today's Photo Heavy Monday is from Beaver Brook Farm in Old Lyme, CT. I had a sheep & lamb visiting jones on Friday. What ? That doesn't happen to you ?
The back lighting through the ears slays me.
Sun worshippers? Or posing?
We were a day early for Open Farm Days, which features lots of shearing & kettle corn.
Fortunately, the shearing was already underway. Unfortunately, no kettle corn.
OTOH with no one else visiting, we got to meet the first lamb of the season up close & personal.
They also have a cheese shop, and butcher counter.
Handspun mitts & hat. Love.

If you click on the link up top , you'll see you can go visit Beaver Brook Farm almost every day. It is the best antidote I can think of to the barrage of commercial, overwrought holiday stuff going on. Also, really excellent cheese.
I like to serve their Pleasant Son because we are what we eat.
If you don't happen to live around here, try googling "farms to visit" and your location.
