Farm Tour – Chisholm Family Farm (Elmwood, NE)

The hubby and I LOVE touring local farms, and there are SO many great ones in the Omaha, NE area!!! Last weekend we visited Chisholm Family Farm in Elmwood, NE (about 40 minutes from Omaha). Special thanks to Laura (and her daughter) for hosting us for the afternoon!! We had a blast visiting, petting and feeding the animals and also enjoyed a tour of the RAW MILK facilities and store! I highly encourage my readers and clients to buy from local farmers AND to visit local farms to see where healthy food comes from!

“Attacked” By a Dairy Cow….and Lived to Tell!

Because we prefer to buy much of our food directly from farmers, we often visit the farms where our food is grown or raised. Below is footage of my attempt to “greet” a dairy cow at Kvam Family Farm (West Point, NE).  We tried to approach cow after cow, but every  one just politely rejected us and walked slowly in the opposite direction. So when this cow actually stayed put…and not only that, but lifted her head in my direction, I got a little “spooked.”  It’s embarrassing to look back at the video and to see how docile these creatures really are, but I just have a fear (as slightly irrational as it may be) of most any animal that weighs more than I do – horns or not!!
