One of my dreams has always been to live on a farm---specifically to milk a cow by hand, the old fashioned way. I have to say that Liberty Hill Farm (Beth and Bob) exceeded all my expectations!
I not only got to milk a cow on the eve of my 50th birthday, but I also got to bottle feed several newborn calves, and witness a birth as well! Bonus!
That aside, what was so heartwarming, was that the farmhouse hospitality (owners BETH and Bob). Beth is an amazing cook! The food she served was out of this world. Each and every meal was a FEAST! I felt like a queen, yet at the same time, I felt like I was back home at my mom's house in Michigan. The desserts were outrageous....and most of the food was local. We had engaging interesting fun conversations, and both my partner, Nancy and I felt completely comfortable and a "part of".
I celebrated my birthday on March 1, 2013. I have thought of Liberty Hill Farm every day since.
I miss my baby cows....Scout, Gracie, Butchie, and Curt (short for Courage). I definitely recommend Liberty Hill Farm, and I plan to go back again. It was an extraordinary adventure!
