We visited Jenny at her farm--Freerange Farm--with close attention to the strutting rooster and the polish chickens nesting in the leaves under the bushes. It is a beautiful farm with healthy horses and active chickens. She has built a riding ring with a fabric ceiling(!) that makes the interior space light and beautiful (the picture of Jenny riding Courtland is in the ring). I have great strutting bird pictures for reference so it was a ton of fun and nice to be outside in the high blue sky morning we had.
We visited Appleton Farm in Ipswitch later to see the cows, the property and the buildings to learn about the Foundation that supports this ancient American farm--its organic vegetable and flower gardens and the grassfed cows. It was enormous and beautiful with lots of stone walls.
