The Annual Strolling of the Heifers Parade

eat chicken Strolling of the Heifers is a celebration of cows, farmers, artists, and the sustainable practices that nurture and preserve our families, communities and rural way of life. Our little Vermont bed and breakfast is a great example of that, because we are also a small working farm that can appreciate all that farming has offered our family over the years.

The annual Strolling of the Heifers parade/festival will be held on Main Street America, taking place in June, not far away in nearby Brattleboro, Vermont. As Farmer Bill has in the past, he'll be walking one of our calfs - assuming we have one that is the right age at the time.

The calf shown here is "Valentine", a spendid heifer who had a most wonderful time a couple of years ago, participating in the strolling event. He was dressed up with pink rabbit ears and loved getting his picture taken with our guests. Needless to say, Valentine make this guest's Vermont vacation one to remember.

The heifer parade is like no other as thousands of cow fanciers line the streets amidst lawn chairs and cow balloons to see 75 flower-bedecked bovine beauties identified by name strut their stuff up Main Street Brattleboro led by Putney School students, farmers and 4-H Club members. Lively entertainment and colorful floats, including clowns, a dairy fairy, horses, oxen, alpacas, water buffalo, camels, yaks and more follow as Turkey Hill's Giant Cow and cow-costumed pooper-scoopers play up the moood.1

Spring bloom along the dirt road
Don't get us wrong, we love tar roads as much as everyone else, but when the snowpak in Vermont melts and the trees bloom, the dirt road to our B&B is simply beautiful! Sometimes it's just nice to get away from modern conveniences and travel down a road less traveled. But now-a-days it's actually difficult to find a dirt road without traveling some distance from the city. But, that's OK. We like that our B&B is located in the rural mountains of southern Vermont, and our guests do as well.
