Food/Thoughts: North Fork Valley Recap…

This past week was a whirlwind. A good whirlwind.

Talking and working with Farmers. Learning how animals and crops work together. Taste testing. Sun burns.

Animal petting and feeding. Tractor driving. Calf birth. Sheep grading. Snow. Wine consumption. and a little cooking…

Here is a collection of some of my favorite pictures I took in the North Fork Valley. And there are 467 more pictures if you’d like to know….
