The Farm Life

I was so excited when, a few days ago, I got an email from one of our favorite local farmers, informing us that we are next up on the waiting list for a weekly share of milk.  So today, the kids and I  picked up our first order.

And now we know that this…

Comes from these gals right here…

Creek Kids, meet the Girls.  Girls, meet the Creek Kids.

Each Wednesday, we drive out to the more rural part of the county we live in, to get our weekly share of fruits and vegetables from one farm.  Now we’ll also stop at a second farm to get our milk.  We can also purchase eggs, beef and pork from this farm as well.  The kids love to explore at each farm, say hello to the animals, and play a bit. And I love that we get to eat local, fresh, whole, organic, and quite tasty foods for the rest of the week.

Here's what we got in our box of fresh produce this week.

    Awesome! Reminds me of my childhood. Can you believe that in some states it’s illegal to sell or buy raw milk. What is wrong with this world? Say “Hi” to the girls for me next time you visit them.

    • It is illegal here too, but it is not illegal to buy a share of the herd, and that is what we did. So we technically own these cows along with a bunch of other folks. Two of the cows have babies, one is fairly new. So cute.

    First off let me say- I love your blog! I am starting on my homeschooling journey and have found great ideas and encouragement from it!
    Secondly- Wonderful about the fresh milk! We have been getting fresh milk (i like the term fresh rather than raw) for about a year, but here in Wisconsin (the dairy state of all places) it is illegal and very hard to procure!
