I grew up in a different time.....and a different place.
A place where cows grazed in my back yard... really.
Even after we left farm country, we moved to a town with peach and apple farms, and my high school abutted two farms - one a vegetable farm and the other a turkey farm. Springtime brought about the sweet smell of all natural fertilizer - aka manure.
We live at the ocean now - a different, but wonderful environment to grow up in , but it sure does limit farm exposure. I was ecstatic to find a working farm just 5 miles from our house - right over the town line. They have horses, and sheep and cows, and chickens. Well, just see for yourself.
