Disappointed

There are problems...our kind farmer and his family are having difficulty with the milk inspectors in Kentucky. We have been getting their raw milk for almost 2 years now. It has cream on the top, is always fresh and makes me feel so good. We have been planning on going there tomorrow to visit the farm, and I'm disappointed because I really don't think it's going to work out now.

This issue is heating up nationally once again. http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,2017205,00.html?xid=rss-topstories is the link to a recent TIME magazine article on this very issue. The poor farmers!

Look at these bibs! There's a great tutorial on how to make your own. I know a few people who are pregnant right now...don't you think it would be a great gift? The Liberty of London fabrics are lovely...I'd like to sew myself or the girls a skirt with some of those fabrics! Maybe for Christmas?
Admiring the Kentucky cows...and the barn cat (in the window) on a misty morning last weekend. That farmer was really nice.
The top of the natural bridge in Red River Gorge...beside this tree, with it's dry exposed craggily roots. Such character.

even though I don't order my own milk (would love to figure out how to though!), I am completely sympathetic to the cause. I really wish the gov't would stop getting in the way of small businesses and farmers.

Oh, I forgot to add that the bibs are adorable.

I LOVE liberty of london's designs. Super cute. My girls would love you to make skirts for them too!!!!! Oh, if only I sewed.. .

I hope things work out for the farmers. We've been wanting to purchase raw milk for a while now, but just haven't. Thanks for the info.

I think I might try my hand at those bibs; they don't seem very had at all. Although, I would make them a little longer.

I love the family photo :)
