So far, since November, each time I make the long drive to my favorite Jersey cow farm Mother Nature has to throw down some white stuff at me. Why ?
Today was no different. As I sat up on the hill looking at this barn down in the valley, I could see the snow moving in my direction.
I went into the farm store and they were out of raw milk. The refrigerator was totally empty. All the fresh eggs were sold out too. Not that I need any eggs. My girls are laying well. I think they heard me ordering spring chicks last week and decided to double their output.
I drove all this way and have no good, fresh raw milk for my efforts.
Guess I will not be making kefir this week.
As I lamented about going home empty handed, the big puffy flakes of snow did a double dive and quickened the pace.
The weather vanes were getting difficult to see.
The cow was facing East towards New Hampshire.
The gaggle of geese weren't sure where to face and have no intention of goosing the cow.
Might be time to get my own milk cow.
I am favoring a Jersey or a Brown Swiss/Jersey cross.
Any other suggestions ?
