Went for a drive after a photo shoot earlier this year up north. Found some gravel roads to drive home on. Gotta love the scenic route. You gotta love driving through farmland. 🛣 I just had to stop and shoot some photos of this green field. Love how the irrigation system mimicked the curvature of the rolling hills of the crop. Wasn’t sure what the crop was, still early season. 🚜 Luckily the farmer who works and owns this land drove by. He was curious as to what I was doing and stopped. We had a great conversation on the side of the road. Found out this particular crop was alfalfa. 🐄 Depending on the quality of the crop at the time of harvest, determined who would buy the alfalfa. The best quality crop would go to dairy cow farms. Dairy farms us the highest quality feed to produce the dairy products we consume. 🥛 Thank a farmer for the food you eat, the next time you see one. I am thankful for the time that I was able to chat with this farmer near Ft. Lupton, CO.
