The gravel road kicks up dust, so you have to go slow. Just like at my grandpa's farm so many years ago. Some things just don't change no matter how much the world progresses.
Here's a shot of the outside of the farm store. When I asked what the hours are, the lady laughed! "Just don't come too early or too late" she said. Seems she lives next door and when she hears a car she walks over to tend the counter. The grandfather left the farm to her parents who then let each of their 3 children and spouses build a house and help run the farm. The whole family is committed to running it organic and keeping the beef grass fed and hormone free.
We found the farm cat to be quite friendly. Since Lily was raised with two cat-hating dogs, this was a treat for her to have a cat purr and flop over on its back to be tickled. And, speaking of being tickled...I asked to buy a dozen fresh eggs and was given 18 for the price of 12. The farm lady thought they were a "mite" small, so she made up for it by giving us 6 eggs free. We left feeling we'd gotten our money's worth, that's for sure.
Lily's mama took quite a shine to the rug on the floor, so I got a picture of it for her. I think I saw this rug for sale at Sam's Club or Target, but am not quite sure. Anyone out there who knows who sells it, would you please leave a comment? I think it's an in-door/out-door type rug, about 5 by 7 feet.
