Farmer In The Dell

Saturday was Whatcom County Farm Tour Day, a day set aside when the public could visit many of the small family farms in our area and learn about their operations. There were too many for us to visit them all, so we picked the ones that we were unfamiliar with. It was informative and fun...and there were samples of cheese, milk and ice cream. It was encouraging to see so many families dedicating themselves to hard, hard work and the determination to do it as environmentally friendly as possible. And of course there were the animals!


Turkeys


Chickens
Goats


Pigs

Cows

And of course my favorite....sheep!

And late summer beauty...


And interesting examples of different county lifestyles!!
