A Day At the Dairy Farm

Yesterday, we did a photo shoot at the dairy farm and was it ever fun! For the most part, the cows cooperated, the kids were awesome and we couldn't ask for bluer skies and a gorgeous day. I consider it a privilege to know this incredible family. Just thought I'd share. It's a beautiful place and what an amazing feeling to sit down at the end of the day with a glass of milk in hand and know exactly where it came from (and that it's loaded with health benefits!), the cows' names and temperaments who gave us the milk, the farmers themselves who work so hard and the beauty of the farm where we purchased it from. As always, I encourage all of you, if you don't know where your food comes from, start researching around to find your local farmers. Your food will be fresher and more nutritious. You will begin a relationship with the one(s) that raise your food and you may even gain some education to begin growing some things of your own (Every little bit helps.). I truly believe it is in fact God-honoring to do so. Enjoy the photos!

So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.

I Corinthians 10:31



And God said, “Behold, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is on the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit. You shall have them for food." Genesis 1:29

That I may confirm the oath that I swore to your fathers, to give them a land flowing with milk and honey, as at this day.” Then I answered, “So be it, Lord.” Jeremiah 11:5

 And in that day the mountains shall drip sweet wine, and the hills shall flow with milk, and all the streambeds of Judah shall flow with water; and a fountain shall come forth from the house of the Lord and water the Valley of Shittim. Joel 3:18
Better is a dinner of herbs where love is than a fattened ox and hatred with it. Proverbs 15:17

Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good! Blessed is the man who takes refuge in him! Psalm 34:8

And because of the abundance of milk that they give, he will eat curds, for everyone who is left in the land will eat curds and honey. Isaiah 7:22

He provides food for those who fear him; he remembers his covenant forever. Psalm 111:5

Give us this day our daily bread... Matthew 6:11

You cause the grass to grow for the livestock and plants for man to cultivate, that he may bring forth food from the earth. Psalm 104:14

Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men. Colossians 3:23

And I commend joy, for man has no good thing under the sun but to eat and drink and be joyful, for this will go with him in his toil through the days of his life that God has given him under the sun. Ecclesiastes 8:15

Every moving thing that lives shall be food for you. And as I gave you the green plants, I give you everything. Genesis 9:3

For you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body. I Corinthians 6:20
