I treasure the childhood memories I have of visiting my great aunt’s farm in Illinois where family reunions took place.  The heat and humidity of those Midwest Summers didn’t deter us from eating homemade food, bonding with cousins and experiencing real farm life complete with bee hives (my great uncle was Illinois State Beekeeper at one time), gazing at a herd of bison – all outside.  Yes, we had to swipe away a few mosquitoes!

These memories came flooding back when I saw a picture of a cow creamer on P. Allen Smith’s Instagram account.  P. Allen Smith is an award-winning TV host of P. Allen Smith’s Garden Home, P. Allen Smith’s Garden to Table and the syndicated 30-minute show P. Allen Smith Gardens.  P. Allen Smith inspired me  to find my cow creamer from my mother.  Please find my cow creamer picture below; she even has her little bell on!

I was also enchanted with beautiful pictures of his Moss Mountain Farm, flowers, fruits, vegetables, goats, chickens.  Graze here to visit his Moss Mountain Farm.

Do you have a favorite farm getaway?  If so, I would enjoy hearing from you through a post on my blog or one of my social streams.  If you need help finding getaways such as this or other explorations, please contact me via the Contact tab.
