Beautiful Day to Be Out With the Herd!

Photo Shoot of Beef

Beauty Around Us!

Crab apple blossoms of light pink, billowy white and astonishing magenta are around every corner. Azaleas happily sport their purple flowers.  Forsythia still hang on to a few yellow blossoms.

Gallery Walk & Diversity Day

Posted in Family, Brattleboro, events

Gallery Walk Held Every First Friday Night in Each Month

...Gallery Walk is an interesting event that has no real overseer... it’s more of an organic event.  For the past five or ten years now, Brattleboro has become increasingly well known as an “arts town”.

Homemade Ice Cream? Maple Syrup? Local Beef?

Farm Fest Details

... we’ll feature the Robb Family Farm beef. What other local foods make sense?  A neighbor suggested pasta with dandelion pesto... but we’ve opted for a more traditional, kid-palate-pleasing macaroni & Vermont cheese.

Spring in Vermont Means Bears Are Here!

...first shows him in the garage at 11.40–and then different shots over the next hour and a half!  (And yes, we all–two dogs and five family members--slept through everything!) We even have clear sounds of his apparent joy in licking out the last of those sunflower seeds.

Thinking About a Tour of Chickens!

Baby Chicks!
