Happy Trails

Alberta farm t-shirts by Ole Originials

Last month we had the pleasure of taking part in the Alberta Open Farm Days by visiting Trail’s End ranch (just south of Nanton). The ranch we’ve been buying our “happy cow” beef from for the past few years, A7 Ranche, recently partnered with Trail’s End. We thought it was the perfect opportunity to check things out. Of course, Sam loved watching all the animals, especially the chickens. He spent the morning running from one critter to the next (and then he spent the entire drive home “clucking” in the back seat). It was nice to meet Rachel & Tyler, and see their home. They’re hip to the social media, so we’ve also been enjoying following things at the ranch on Facebook. We’ve even been invited back down to take a better look at the pastures and beef operation on the main ranch, which we are tickled about. We’re getting ourselves, Sam include, exposed bit by bit to this business of farming. Do check out our main farm blog for Happiness by the Acre, where hubby Marcus has been taking on the role of blogger. Until we have our own critters to take pics of, you just have to settle for a little photo tour of Trail’s End ranch 😉
