welcome to the bovine bugle
Follow organic dairy farmer Jonathan Gates as he reports weekly from his Vermont family farm. Howmars Farm is a certified organic dairy farm, one of many Organic Valley/CROPP Cooperative farmer members who supply the milk that goes into making Stonyfield's yogurts and smoothies. The entire family pitches in on this third-generation farm. Check out some of the happenings on his farm and post your comments. Jonathan loves to get feedback from readers.
The Bovine Bugle goes to the "moo-vies"
Today we're pleased to announce that The Bovine Bugle is moving...literally. Jonathan Gates up at Howmars Farm has taken up his video camera and sent us these wonderful shots of his organic herd contentedly grazing in the fields last week. [That's Jonathan's voice you hear, along with the munching of the grass.]
Those of you who have been faithful readers of The Bovine Bugle will now really get to see the action on the farm. We hope to have new "moo-vies" here about once a week, in addition to Jonathan's usual written notes and photos, so please come back and visit often. Also, we'd love it if you used the comment feature below or made a note on the video to tell us what you think of this moo-vie, and what you might like to see in "moo-ving color" in the future.
