my weekend in photos

Saturday was so gorgeous we wanted to be outside, so we took a little drive to visit Nettle Meadow Farm not far from Warrensburg, makers of some truly amazing goat cheese (my favorite). On the farm they have more than 300 goats, and several dozen sheep, and they are also home to several llamas and friendly chickens and ducks. Over 100 goats are milking at any one time and there are goats of all ages living on the farm. The goats and other animals are housed in four large barns and four out buildings including a brand new barn and an historic barn built in 1903. They give free tours on Saturdays at noon (weather permitting so I would call ahead to make sure) and afterward you get to pop into their little cheese shop to take home some of their amazing goat cheese (if you want to try their cheese locally they have some at Healthy Living Market and Cafe, try the Kunik, it is delicious). Stomping around in the mud, petting llamas and trying to kiss chickens, the kids had a great time, and I am still enjoying the goat cheese. On the way home we took a detour to Brant Lake to see how things were thawing, looking forward to the warmer months...
