This talk of yogurt the last few days reminded me of our travel to an Amish farm a couple weeks ago. I love to visit farms, especially the ones our food comes from. Much like eating from our own garden, when we know, can picture the people and animals growing, tending, making the things we love and are nourished by, we are more nourished by them. I really do think so.
On this beautiful day in mid-June, talking to the farmers about cheese making, hearing their take on how to keep a herd healthy, on the practices they use and live by, seeing the cows, and being introduced to two of our favorite things combined- rootbeer floats and kombucha . . . it was just as I hoped.
Thankful for the farmers who share their knowledge and invite us into their spaces, the animals, the land. Thankful to know our food.
