Every night we separate Luna, our milk cow, from her calf Eclipse so we can milk her in the morning. Most mornings she gives about one and a half gallons, which is just about right for our community. Fresh warm milk with our granola is a wonderful way to start the day. Sometimes there is milk left over for a soft cheese.
Veronica, one of our interns, grew up on a farm in France but lost contact with her roots. Now she enjoys the sunset stroll or chase through the pastures, surrounded by the mountains in order to separate Eclipse from her mom. In the process, she is remembering growing up on her parents’ farm.
