Playing with Food

Owl WatermelonDon’t tell mom, you can make a career out of playing with your food! One woman finds her calling in the shape of a large block of cheese. She began cheese sculpting a few years ago, and now sculpts exclusively. She isn’t the only person who likes to play with her food. There are others who enjoy sculpting butter, and people who enjoy creating portraits out of all kinds of food. Maybe you shouldn’t have stopped making those broccoli forests on your plate… 



Heilman Oregon Ranch KidsAfter all the hustle and bustle of your holidays, now could be the perfect time to start planning your next vacation destination for a  comforting, low-key, and relaxing farm stay. Picture gathering your family for a vacation that is filled with beet harvesting, goat milking, and cheese-making classes! What better way to make it through the winter doldrums than by dreaming about the warmer months to come!
