Photos of the Hollister Hill Farm’s self-serve stand and barns in Marshfield, VT. I tried raw milk for the first time and it was incredible! Generally, I’m border-line lactose intolerant but ignore it in the name of good cheese, but when we arrived at the farm after hiking the rolling hills that lay between it and Justin’s house, I was so thirsty that I drank the whole pint glass the farmer had given me to try. You know how milk generally needs to go with something? Cookies, or chocolate or peanut butter? Not so with this milk- it was perfect on its own and made me feel great. The farm was a beautiful model of how a small-scale, well run dairy and meat operation can produce plenty of delicious food and still provide a healthy and high quality of life for all the animals.

my brief stint as an olive harvester in the Cycladic islands – I wasn’t that good at it. I sort of just took pictures the whole time.

and lastly: idealistic foodie college students in a sustainable agriculture class = the most brilliant source of free labor a CSA could hope for! Took these before I had photoshop…my, how far we’ve come.
