she shoots sheep shots, yet again

* Coffee giveaway still in full swing--go enter. Java! *
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. 0181_GZuckerBeaverBrook 0168_GZuckerBeaverBrook
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. 0218_GZuckerBeaverBrook
OTOH with no one else visiting, we got to meet the first lamb of the season up close & personal.0254_GZuckerBeaverBrook
 They also have a cheese shop, and butcher counter.0259_GZuckerBeaverBrook

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.

I am so jealous! I also want kettle corn. I totally blame you for this!

I want to live on a farm that has a wool shop on premise. Sigh.
