Even though I grew up in dairy country, it’s been a long time since I spent a day working on a farm. And so I don’t know whether it’s my own growing desire to understand where my food comes from or the simple fact that I miss playing in dirt, but I’m putting a work exchange on a farm stay on my list of to-do’s for next year.
Is this something you would do? Here’s a resource if you’re interested in looking at farm stay options in the US! Let me know – maybe we could do it together! (Fair warning: I’m going to make you look bad. I won a cow milking context in 6th grade.)
Also, did you know that sheep have 4 stomach compartments? I think I’m part-sheep.
