    Your Style Girlfriend: On the Farm (and At the Vineyard)

    15th August 2012




    Went a little Twitter and Instagram-crazy on Sunday. My friend invited me along on his CSA’s annual “farm tour/wine guzzling tasting extravaganza.” I fed a goat that turned out to be a sheep (I’m a city girl – so sue me), dug some potatoes out of the ground, and got to sip on some surprisingly tasty Long Island wines. All in all, a good day.

    The best part, the bus picked us up and let us off right at McCarren Park near my apartment, so I was able to cart home some berries that I picked myself to enjoy the next day. So…I’m basically Pioneer Woman. Thinking about fording a river soon. I don’t know if I’ll have time to caulk the wagon first so it’s strong enough to carry all these bison I just caught.

    Anyhoo, now returning to your regularly scheduled style programming.

    If you want to catch all the farm animal action (yup) next time, follow me on Twitter and on Instagram: @styleGF

      So long as you’re clear on the difference between a goat and a sheep now.

        I’d like to think it would have dawned on me eventually…

          Well those sheep can be tricksters, I mean who could really blame you?

      Wisconsin really had no affect on you? Surely the land of bovines had some impact???

          I like how you corrected your own correct word choice. You’re thorough.

            I’ve got smart readers :)

      I think if I went to a farm I would think to myself, “Wow, I’m surrounded by so many types of meat.” Then I would start salivating for no reason and want to have a steak posthaste.

      Can we have “Foodie Style Girlfriend?”

      Wow, those are big blackberries. The ones growing nearby are tiny.

      • Style Girlfriend

        I only picked the biggest I could find!

      Well, the picture didn’t upload on the first comment.

      If you live in New York City and say “the Vineyard,” it means Martha’s Vineyard. You were at “a vineyard,” not “the Vineyard.” Yes, I know I sound obnoxious, but it’s true.
