Rudd Farms Visit

At work today we got to take a field trip. 
To the farm.

Where we get out ends, some produce and sometimes the turkeys for holidays.

We got to meet all the hundreds of chickens. 
Walk around in their massive open land they roam in.

There was two massive pigs. 
Coated in mud and hairy as can be.

Then we hung out at the barn while our Chef cooked us some duck eggs with cheese and greens on asiago baguettes.

That is perhaps, the furriest/happiest pig I have ever seen! Great photos

Beautiful day! Some of those Rhode Island Red chickens look funny to me. A few have no tail feathers! We have one. And we have a Barred Rock and an Araucana. ♥ Yum. How were those duck eggs? I've never had them before...

I absolutely love fresh eggs and this looks like so much fun. More jobs should have field trips with lunch served by a chef! I'm dreaming, I know.

Sarah said...

Wow, duck eggs huh. Was there a difference in taste? The view DOES look lovely. I always enjoy visiting farms =)

All work field trips should be so beautiful. I love those wild chickens, they look so happy. I've never eaten an egg that fresh, but I bet it tasted like a bit of yellow sunshine.
