Calf House (Plein Air) Great bay Farm, Greenland, NH

This morning I took my pochade down the road to the Great Bay Farm in Greenland, New Hampshire to do some Plein Air painting. I set up in front of the calf house and slapped down some oils as quickly as I could, racing against the fast moving sun.

Half way through my painting I met Cynthia Smith, the owner of the Great Bay farm, who's great grandfather purchased this property in 1895. She put down her wheel barrow to stop and say hello and mentioned she was on the trail of a run-away heffer who had managed to sneak out of the pen. (See my post of the run-away cow above, trotting past me shorly after my conversation with Mrs. Smith.)

I love this farm and it's character and plan to return as often as I can.

If you only knew how those cows are treated on that farm and how Cynthia treats the newborn calves.
