Family. Friends. Farm. FUN!
Corn Maze fun of 2010!
Until Next Year!
Right down from the farm sits a cute little creamery. Milking cows oak trees surround the little dairy shop. It’s like taking a step back into the good ole days. You even switch out your glass milk bottles, y’all…it’s that real! Ella loves going to the dairy with Grandmama, almost as much as she loves drinking the milking cows’ liquid gold ;) Our entire family are lovers of whole milk, but this milk takes it to a ‘whole’ new level. Thick, sweet, and oh-so-creamy.
I had actually never personally opened one of the bottles until this past visit…and what I saw deserved its own blog post. I heard my MIL say…”Oh, don’t forget to shake it really well, first…” But it was too late, I had popped the top.
That’s real cream right there, folks. I had to stop myself from licking the spoon.
I love supporting local business, and I LOVE farm fresh even more! I also adore buying from anyone who places a Bible verse on it’s product (one of the things I love about Premier)!
“the hills shall flow with milk…” Joel 3:18
Well, really the farmer’s son, but it just didn’t fit into the song! Seeing as how my husband is unemployed at the moment and God is provided exceedingly with Premier, our little family is finding ourselves back in God’s country way more than usual. Instead of filling our days with story time and mom’s group, we are busy chugging on a tractor, fishing in the pond, and “helping” in the field! It really just makes this country girl want to pack up and move back home…one day, one day!
Y’all my husband on a tractor just does something to me ;) Now I just need to find a cowboy hat big enough! Although, I am pretty sure that would just about do me in. I don’t know if I could take all the manliness at one time!
These two bumpkins were right at home on the farm. By day two they couldn’t remember what car seats and highways were ;)
We also took some time one evening to peek at the freshly cleared land…AKA “Future Basford Compound!” In the nearer future, however, it will be planted with more Perennial Peanut.
Can’t you just see a few stately southern homes flanking the pond?! How beautiful!
Although, we may need to clear out some of those millions of cow patties first…lawd have mercy…my child is standing in dried poop…and dancing on it.
Three tired farmers ;)
God’s amazing work…
