Hated by many.
Loved by others.
The longest Season in Vermont.
Often tricky on the farm.
Cold, wind and snow can cause extra work.
Wood needs to be cut, because we can never get that done before Winter.
Stored feed needs to be hauled for the cows.
Extra work needed to ensure cows energy stays high.
Making milk is important!
Breakdowns are harder in the winter.
But the rhythm of life slows.
There’s time for hot chocolate by the fire.
Reading may happen before my farmer nods off.
Dreams and plans are formulated while the winds blow.
Spring is planned for.
Repair lists made.
Supply needs listed.
There is still much work in this Season.
The landscape is transformed to a virtual, white blanket.
Vermont is beautiful in each Season.
Winter is no exception.
There’s skiing and snow shoeing.
Maybe if there’s,time the snow mobile can get working and the outdoor time becomes even more exciting.
Those bright sunny snow filled days are rare, but exquisite.
There are festivals and many wonderful activities happening all around during the Winter!
Our Guest House and Guest Suite are the perfect way for one to enjoy a piece of Vermont in the Winter!
Cuddle up with your favorite drink and take in the view in our Davis Farm Guest House.
Head into Burlington for a show at the Flynn or time at the Echo.
Head to Smugglers Notch to ski away the day!
Bring your snow shoes and take in the beauty on our 200 acre farm.
Winter is here to stay.
30 Days of Thankfulness
I am thankful for:
My farmer who heads to the barn no matter the weather
Our cozy home and hot coffee
kids who work no matter the weather
The crisp, clean landscape reminding us of Christs love for us
Heat in our car
Heat in our home
Those who help us cut and stack wood each year
the slow down of winter
this drafty old house
the beauty of each season
