Tour de Farm

Raquel and I made the rounds today to a few San Diego area farms for a project we are working on.  We started the day with a pot each of Yerba Mate tea at one of the farms~


Here are a few of my favorite pics from today.  Hope you enjoy the brief tour~


trimming the persimmon trees before they bud~


Dozens of Rhode Island Reds, a few roosters and handful of guinea fowl, all together; for the feathered set, it was definitely the place to be~


We will be touring and photographing regularly; look for future Tour de Farm posts here.


  1. I think I want to move there.
    I'm so serious.
    Is that goat smiling?

  2. Love the white goat. She reminds me of the nanny we had in Greece.

  3. While I live in the country ( well in town in the country ) I always appreciate the beautiful farms and ranches in the area,,,, The tea looks great and that little goat has a great expression on his face! Hope you enjoyed your day!Maryanne ;)

  4. I can't pick a favorite today. Well yes I can....quatre chats is too adorable!
    I love the farm. I can't wait for more visits and your beautiful photographs.

  5. Andrea I can see you had a very special day and do miss living in the area.

  11. How did I miss this great post? It takes me back to our childhood holidays in the country with great Aunts: collecting warm eggs; hanging the milk pail on the fence so it could be filled with farm fresh milk - so early in the morning that we were still asleep; long walks down country lanes to exercise the house dogs; picking ripened fruit from the trees (and eating as much as we could before taking it inside); watching the local baker mix and bake his bread then eating it hot from the oven............... It is such a shame that current urban life has robbed many children of such experiences. At least the farmers markets gives the younger generation some direct exposure to farmers and their wonderful, fresh produce.
    Bonne semaine
