Here are the two books I took to get signed by Suzanne McMinn one of the books is my copy and one is my friend Megan's. It was my birthday and this is what I wanted to do was visit one of my favorite authors and her farm. So the adventure began on my birthday where we loaded up the big black van and headed to the hills of West Virginia. Roane County to be exact! Oh was I excited, everyone else not so much but hey they roll with it! That's how my family is they just roll with the flow. We even had Skylar with us ( my 2 year old granddaughter). Suzanne has a wonderful website called chickensintheroad.com you can get a copy of the book here
Here I am on my 47 th birthday loaded up ready to go to West Virginia. As my husband said "Chickens in the Road here we come". It was a long ride it took us over 9 hours we had some van issues, but Bruce was able to get it fixed. We did have a few repairs made while we were there in a garage that was able to make our needed repairs.
Skylar was excited about the journey too. She had her toys and cups for her "grandma I'm thirsty" moments. We rode and rode. We had lunch along the way with sandwiches I packed.
The lovely house of Sassafras Farm.
As you can see the milking has began.....
Oh yes and after this trip NOTHING taste better than fresh milk. I enjoyed every tasty dairy product I consumed at Sassafras Farm.
I hope you enjoyed a tiny view into my trip to West Virginia for my birthday to Sassafras Farm. It was truly a great way to spend my 47th birthday. The kids enjoyed it and I learned a lot! I hope to go back again as it was very enjoyable, educational and just great meeting new friends. I am always on the look out for new cheese books and ideas for when I do get my dairy cow. Please if you can please read Suzanne's book it is a wonderful memoir and a look into Suzanne's farm. There are excellent recipes, and craft ideas at the end of the book which is great when you are a maker. Great ideas to try and make. Have fun!!!
