A Connection to the Land

At Shelburne Farms, just south of Burlington, Vermont, you feel a connection to the land  when you eat the cheese they make there from their own cows' milk and the chicken, turkey, and bacon from their own animals. Of course, it's a little harder to enjoy the pure flavor when you know these animals, whose names were once on a chalkboard in the barn, have given their lives for your sandwich.


We had fun watching goats and sheep eat their hay.
 When we ate lunch, I mistakenly set my plate on the bench of the picnic table. Within seconds, a rooster had snatched some turkey and bacon from my plate!
