I had SO much fun this afternoon! It was an Open Farm Day at my friend Catherine’s Yellow Springs Farm in Chester Springs, PA.
(Incidentally, tomorrow, May 13th is another Open Farm Day and Native Plant Sale day from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. – the address is 1165 Yellow Springs Road.)
She has awesome goats, so yes I was a little obsessed with the kids in the herd – they are super cute and very sweet.
We also bought some fabulous artisanal cheeses – a couple of chevres, Red Leaf, and Nutcracker….and one more I forget the name of right now.
I got my plant fix – the Renzis’ plants are awesome. This is the third garden I have added them to.
But the other thing is this – the farm is a little slice of heaven. The setting is utterly bucolic, and the staff friendly.
So if you were going to pick a farm to try, this would be my pick. Check them out on Open Farm Days and other Open House events. Or find them at a local farmers market, or sign up for their goat cheese CSA. You can also call or e-mail them for an appointment, and they look for volunteers and interns too.
Buy fresh, buy local…in Chester County!
