Country Driving

Beautiful old house on the property.

One of my many hobbies is to go on long country drives every once in a while. The one I took a few weeks ago was out to see Yellow Springs Farm in Chester Springs, PA. They grow native plants and make award winning goat cheese.

Raku provided a warm welcome.

After falling in love with their Red Leaf cheese (they wrap it in sycamore leaves to age it) I knew I had to go and see the place for myself. The drive out was long and stunning. When we pulled up the farm seemed like something out of a story book. The place was in full bloom, filled with yellow flowers and happy bees. Of course then we saw the goats.

Twinkle has not yet mastered climbing up on the fence.

All of the goats were very friendly vying with one another for our attention and clambering up the fence for us to scratch their ears.

Almost Twinkle!

They also had a beautiful pond filled with giant Koi and surrounded with black walnut trees. We sat in the dappled shade for a long time admiring the view and tasting some more cheese and honey. It was a great afternoon.
