Milking Time

Milking time. Rouse Family Farm (Big Valley)

While Ed got the ATV and Judy went into the barn, I got the gate and the cows started their lumbering walk to the barn. "Good light today for you, isn't it?" Ed notice, and he also noticed I had my fisheye landscape lens out. Ed doesn't miss much.I love the stately parade of the cows to the barn as the sun hit the farmhouse. Family farms are rich and wonderful places. They are struggling It is important that these idiosyncratic individualists find a way to survive. You can help a bit buy considering the Family Farm notecards, which go to benefit farm aid. I will be bringing some and selling them on the book tour and you can buy them on Redux or call the gallery at 802 867-4211. Family farming is a tough life, and this way of life is beset by all sorts of pressures. In the Corporate Nation, the fight for individualism is on.
