Victor does not eat mammals but eats cheese like a famished mouse. A city mouse to be sure. He had never seen animals in their natural domestic production setting. He’d never stepped foot on farm.
Just north of Concord, Great Brook Farm is a working dairy farm that also happens to be a state park and a decent bike ride out of the city. Here, Vic got the chance to have his hand slobbered on by an old ewe and some seriously fat and testy pygmy goats.
In addition to the farm animals, we got to see the bunting in Concord hung for Patriot’s Day and the character actors out and about for the reenactments on Monday. The magnolias are in bloom, the daffodils are up, the willow trees are budding in bright chartreuse. It’s spring in New England and our biking is just getting better and better.
