They give Hay Rides in the Fall. It's the only time one can actually see the whole farm which is bordered by Chestnut Hill and Brookline. A drive down Allendale Road is like a lovely fiction of rural life that lasts for about a delicious minute before one hits the backed up traffic of commuters making their way home from work.
The farm's vision has been pretty tame. Vegetables, chickens, a nursery and a small specialty grocery.
Imagine my surprise when I saw these guys grazing one day last Spring.
What the heck are they?
Two Long Horn steer. In Boston. Not in the zoo. Grazing peacefully right along Allendale Road.
I think the farm needs a few donkeys.
Here is Opal grazing with the sheep. Her face is covered with flies. I found a tank top in the car, soaked it with water and managed to remove a big goober from her right eye. This is where the flies like to drink. I tried to solve the problem with a wet rag. She had other ideas.
Happy Fourth of July everyone.
