Photo Essay: Farm Life

One of my favorite things to do while traveling is hang out with local people. Once, during a trip to Israel, we had Israeli soldiers accompany our tour–and when we had down time, I always opted to go out to eat or walk around with some of them. This lead me to some of the greatest falafel on on the planet, but, more importantly, to a more authentic experience. So when a friend asked if I wanted to visit the Vermont farm she’d worked for during her summer break, I couldn’t get there fast enough. Spending an autumnal afternoon at Amee Farm allowed me to truly see Vermont at its best…and play in the mud.
