At rest for the winter, farm equipment is parked out of the harsh elements for a few months.
Although it looks like the hay equipment isn't doing anything, it serves many purposes as it sleeps in the shed.
Mice have built nests in the interiors of the haybines and rakes. Snakes are hibernating in the hay still left in the equipment. Birds will use the "left overs" to nest in when spring gets closer.
Every farm has outbuildings that are used for storage or making different products, like maple syrup.
Soon there will be sweet smoke billowing out of the stack as the tastiest liquid in the world is made in Vermont.
What do you have in your outbuildings?
