Farms on Tour

"The first farmer was the first man. All historic nobility rests on the possession and use of land." Ralph Waldo Emerson

Life began in a garden (Garden of Eden) with that first man (Adam) and has continued through today. It's time to take a look at some of this farm land.

Napa Valley farms.....California

Rolling farm fields

Morning mist on a Tuscan farm (actually I think it's a vineyard but it's close enough)

Fish farm

Fish farm

Behaving badly on the farm!

Wheat threshing floor..... Asia....still doing it the old fashion way.

Fall foliage on the farm

Sheep farm....Ireland

Tuscan farm

Strawberry farm. I think we need one of these!

Salt farm.....Thailand.

Oyster farm

Trying to farm. Who needs a horse anyway? Gotta give him 5 stars for effort and for being resourceful.

Wind farm. Is this really a farm?

Potato farm.....1943

Village in rice farm terraces...Asia. Now aren't you glad that you're not the poor sap that had to build this?!?!

Rice farm....Asia

Rice farm...China

Sunflower farm....California

A farm with an amazing view!!

Ostrich farm.

Seed farm.

Organic farm...Aurora Dairy, Boulder, Colorado--the nation’s largest organic dairy producer. The largest private-label organic milk supplier in the United States. Is this really organic...or the organic you think you are paying for?

Lavender farm....British Columbia

And lastly....
To the farm market...Asia. At first I thought they just had to be dead while being transported this way but the closer I looked the more I saw they were not. Is this USDA approved?
