Plus, this week we went for a visit to Boggy Meadows Farm, in Walpole, NH to try their handmade farmstead cheese, made twice a week, right there on the spot and to see the beautiful scenery they have to offer.
That is one thing i have a great appreciation for, is fresh and local. These farmers aren't out to make a mint with mass produced product, they just take pride in using what God gave them and making it into something beautiful.
I will stop by babbling now and leave you with some photos of the farm and the different varieties of their cheese. I hope you enjoy!
