green mountain girls farm

tonight, i went over to northfield with a few friends, 
where the fabulous mari, laura and their fun team hosted
a farm supper and tour.
check out the size of these sun gold tomato plants
and the bounty on their vines!
pastured pigs.
the farm offers a thursday farm stand,
a year-round, omnivore's farm share
and farm stays in a lovely guesthouse.
here's one of the girls.
waiting to be milked.
"latte on the hoof"

i came away from the evening feeling very well fed,
absolutely amazed at what these women have accomplished in less than four years,
and utterly inspired by the love, enthusiasm and joy they have poured into this land.
(not to mention...ahem...hard work!)
read all about the farm here.
