hapter Two: Hashtag #LateNight
Mom and I ended our first evening, closing the bar at the Marriott.
I mean, it’s really easy to do when all you do is drink
So the next morning, I was seeing things crystal clear and looking …
We were meeting our team and heading out to Percy Farms for the morning.
What was really sweet was sporting the ride because it’s all about style…
Double Hashtag: #Peoplearewatching
We arrived at Percy Farms and the site was amazingly beautiful. Honestly, I wasn’t disappointed in mother nature one bit.
Just disappointed my iPhone didn’t capture all that beauty well.
Welcome to Percy Farms
It was quite a quaint farm with 300 cows and I made friends quickly.
Who introduced me to some of her closest friends.
You know what I say…
This was one of my favorite parts on our trip. We got to chat it up with one of Cabot’s family owned and operated farmers.
He clued me in to how important the cows lifestyle (from feed to environment) contributes to the taste of cheese. I mean, Cabot really kicks butt in the tasting department and they really take all measures to make sure their cows are in tip-top shape.
These babies are just one day old! Aren’t they beautiful?
Okay, I can’t help myself…ready?
What kind of haircuts do punk cows like?
The farmers even call in nutritionists to supply each cow with the proper diet. Yes, you read that correctly. Amazing.
After our tour, we headed out to see the Von Trapp Family attraction but it started to rain so no photos there. Followed by lunch at a local apple/cider restaurant and a stop at the Cabot Annex store.
Then we dropped by the Expo for a little browsing when I met another Cabot Cheese lover…
Joanne and I felt like we practically knew this man forever.
Mom and I headed back to the hotel for some shut eye because soon it was time to get up again.
In the evening we attended a Ronald McDonald Charity Event where 1984 Gold Olympian, Joan Benoit Samuelson was speaking!
After her speech, I got the chance to meet and get her autograph.
I’m not even quite sure what happened to me. I got all giddy and laughed sounds I’ve never heard.
Needless to say, I’m still beaming from it.
After dinner it was one more final bar time. We stayed for a little bit then raced off to get some shut eye for the big day…
