Yesterday Kelly and I took a short day trip out to Lincoln to visit the Drumlin Farm. We wanted to see it because I am thinking about applying for a job there with Mass Audubon. So we spoke with some friends of ours who work there and went out to see them.
Drumlin Farm is a working farm where they emphasize sustainable agricultural practices. They also rescue and rehabilitate wildlife, such as birds of prey, deer, and foxes. And they also have a fairly large number of domestic farm animals, including many heritage or heirloom breeds (a favorite of mine). And lucky for us, we got to see some of these animals, including some of the newest residents – baby goats, or kids.
I spent a lot of time reminiscing about my grandparents’ farm in Somerset, which I do miss quite a bit. But I had someone else to talk to about it besides Kelly, which I am sure she appreciated.
So we had a lot of fun, despite the fact that it started to rain on us near the end of the afternoon. I will definitely go back for another visit, even if I don’t ever end up working there.
