Fall in Full Swing

"I'm so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers."
L.M. Montgomery, Anne of Green Gables

We had a cool and wet summer in Virginia this year so seeing blue sky has been a welcome change this month. It's hard to believe October is coming to a close already! Fall is always busy around the farm but this year it has been moving at a blinding pace it seems. We had our first frost last week which was followed by a dusting of snow 3 days later. The excitement of snow has worn off a bit since there is never a 2 hour delay at a dairy farm :) The silage is finally done and we are in the midst of building a new calf barn (a feature on it will be coming soon). I hope everyone can spend a few minutes today admiring the beauty of October! Happy Wednesday everyone!

Check out October on the farm!
