The most beautiful cows

It has been a really long time since I had a post and I must solve that now.  I think the inspiration is from these gorgeous cows.  The Belted Galloway cows are heritage breed cattle that have unique markings.  I had the great opportunity to meet these cows and their farmer in Kentucky at Pike Valley Farms.  Daniel Pike showed me around the farm and I learned a bit about this heritage breed of cattle and the on-site sustainable farming practices at Pike Valley Farms.  Belted Galloway’s are well suited for pasture raised living and their thick double layer of fur is great in the Kentucky winters.

I hope you enjoy some of these pictures and check out Pike Valley Farms for beef, pork, poultry, eggs and CSA vegetables if you have the chance.

This pig has a great story that I will share one day because it's worth a blog post all on its own.
