We took a trip this past weekend to Kriemhild Dairy Farm's 2nd Annual Calving Day, which celebrates the first day of Kriemhild's meadow butter-making season, as well as the natural cycle surrounding seasonal grass-fed dairy farming. We roamed the pasture, sampled some of Kriemhild's delicious grass-fed butter and creme fraiche, and we got to play with these cuties.

Last year, we immediately witnessed a cow birthing when we arrived. We didn't get to see one this year, but we still have video footage from Calving Day 2017. Don't hit play if you'd rather not watch a cow giving birth (but just to let you know, it was a girl)!

Life is beautiful!
