Clara:

What do you do for fun/to destress?

Stay active! Sometimes this means running for fun or training for a race and sometimes it’s family walks or bike rides. In the winter, it is days on the slopes with our family, or skating in the backyard. Recently, we’ve enjoyed loading the family up in our side by side; it’s fun to explore our farmland with the whole family. Also, Dana and I love going out for a nice meal with a good glass of wine; another favorite is dancing the night away at a concert!




What is your favorite way to spend time with your kids?

Exploring! Watching the kids faces light up while showing them new things will never get old. What’s fun about the farm is that there’s always something new to see, so lots of times exploring can be in our backyard. They also love going to the beach or a game!



What pets do you have? What do they enjoy doing?

Lucy (dog), is a love. She mostly just loves being close to us; belly rubs, kisses, and a nice long walk are her favorite things.

Max (cat) is one of a kind. He was known to join us at the dinner table, before it got too wild with kids! He loves snuggles, he is incredibly kind with our kids, he’s a great hunter, and he will occasionally tag along with us for a family walk.





Melissa:

What do you do for fun/ to destress?

I love working out at home and helping others get started in their wellness journeys. I love being with family and friends, ice cream and adventures with my family.








What is your favorite way to spend time with your kids?

I've lived in Vermont most of my life, but didn’t try skiing until a few years ago. Our family will be doing more of that together, so I’ll keep learning and hopefully get better. We like spending time at our camp, and both girls are into 4H and love helping dad at work on the farm.




What pets do you have? What do they enjoy doing?

We have a 14 1/2 year old chocolate lab who is slowing down, but still loves to swim in the lake and snuggle up close to us.


Bonnie:

What do you do for fun/ to destress?

I absolutely LOVE spending time with the grandkids, always a highlight of my day. I feel so lucky to have them close by and spend as much time with them as I can. They grow up so fast and I want to be a part of their life at every stage.

Elizabeth:

For fun, I like to bake, cook, and show cows!


What is your favorite way to spend time with your kids?

My favorite way to spend time with my kids is after work going to the heifer barn with them, learning each calves names, and making sure to give extra cuddles to our calves together. After that, I like making a fresh meal with them and dance parties in the kitchen.



What pets do you have? What do they enjoy doing?

We have two kitties (Rondo and Kitty), a pit bull named Austin, and about 20 show cows or heifers. We enjoy family walks to the barn (all three pets come with us every night) to give our heifers one more bit of hay before bed time.
