Bower’s Family Farm, Photo Friday

13 Sep

This week I thought I would put some pictures on here from my friend Marie Bowers.  She is a 5th generation farmer from down in the southern part of the Willamette Valley here in Oregon.  She is also a blogger and is the one who convinced me to start this darn thing in the first place!  You can check out what she’s up to and subscribe to her blog at http://www.oregongreen.wordpress.com

Thanks Marie for letting me share some of your photos and for sharing your love for farming!  And like I said you should definitely check out her blog!  One of my favorite posts has a ton of videos about grass harvest, a nice way to see what’s going on at her farm!  You can click here to see the post.  Hope everyone has a great weekend!
