Big blue sky, green pine trees and red and white Herefords getting some sunshine on their hillside.
Clcik on the photos to enlarge them and enjoy the colors even more.
I was going to title this post ":Hillside Heifers" but noticed that the majority of them were cows with a few handsome steers and heifers thrown in the mix.
The farmer who owns them sells fresh beef at the local farmers markets.
He also sells fresh chicken, eggs, corn and pork.
I have 2 of his pork chops in my freezer right now.
When I look in my freezer I know the farms and farmers that all my food came from.
None of it has bar codes or a long list of ingredients attached to it.
In most instances I know the name, age and breed of the animal that is in the package.
These cows free range all winter. They have a big barn to go into, but seldom do. They prefer standing up on their hills, under the trees in the sun and snow watching the wild turkeys, deer and caffeinated drivers go by.
They are a pleasant sight to see as I drive down the rural back roads on my side of Vermont.
I really like that this herd of cows are very calm and are not at all concerned about my vehicle being at the bottom of their hill.
They gaze at me and continue to chew their cud.
Thank goodness for cud.
Have a great day!
Do you have some eye candy that you get to see on your way to work ?
