Drumlin Farm

I've been talking about visiting Drumlin Farm for a while now and today was the day.  What a gem this place is!  I'm sure being there on Easter Sunday helped make it more enjoyable for me, I imagine it's usually a lot more crowded.  I'm not one for crowds.  The glorious southern California like weather didn't hurt either.  Sunny and 70 degrees! This was likely the 1st time my elbows have seen in the sun in about 8 months. 

Drumlin Farm, in scenic Lincoln MA, is part working farm and part animal sanctuary.  All of the wild animals in captivity had a little story about the circumstances that brought them there.  It was so sad reading about broken wings, lost eyes, and other maladies.  But it makes you really grateful that Mass Audubon has taken them in when they surely would've perished in the wild.  And they are now helping teach the public about appreciating nature and wildlife.  A very important job for this ragtag bunch.

I hear Drumlin also sells meat and eggs from their farm as well as CSA subscriptions.  Can you tell I'm loving this place?  Can't wait to go back!

The largest, most pregnant pig I've ever seen.  It would've been a wonder to see her move around.
