We go to the East Coast a couple of times of year to visit my husband’s family, who live near Philadelphia. We haven’t been in the summer before, and we thought we would take advantage of the warm weather to visit south-central Pennsylvania for a few days. Andrew worked his usual magic, and found us accommodations in the guest house of a working dairy farm. I am from Wisconsin, so it wasn’t hard to sell me on the concept. I remember visiting the dairy farms of my relatives when I was a kid. Emma and Sam were very excited about the idea of a farm; not just milking cows but collecting the eggs from the chickens also. What we didn’t realize it that the farm would be chock full of cute cats and kittens. There are some cat pictures in this post, but I am saving the majority for the following post, which will be all cats, and nothing but cats. Cats, cats, and more cats. Yeah!
But back to the farm. Sharon and Barry are farmers who rent out their guest house on Meadow K View farm. We spent lots of time on their front porch petting cats, which also gave us a chance to chat with them. They were lovely hosts, taking us on a tour around the farm, and allowing the kids to “help” with the milking. Check out the photos below to get a virtual tour of their farm, complete with big animals, small animals, new barns, old barns, solar panels, and corn. A heady mixture indeed!

I hope I gave you a good sense of how enjoyable our time on the farm was. We are headed out there again this summer for a few days of down time. It will be fun to see how the cats have grown and changed. I have A LOT more cat pictures (which won’t surprise anyone who knows me), so my next post will be devoted to the cats of Meadow K Farm, in all their adorable glory!
