Susan Reinberg Photography: Farm Views
Field and Pasture
If you don’t think of Connecticut as farm country, the photographs here may convince you otherwise. From cornfield to hayfield to orchard to pumpkin patch, the hillside vistas are punctuated with silos, barns, livestock and farm equipment.
Maple syruping signals winter’s end. Farmers start to prepare the fields and the growing season begins. Summer erupts in full glory. Farm stands open with locally grown fruits, berries and vegetables. Dairy farms stock local markets with milk, cheese and ice cream. Meat counters offer Connecticut- raised beef, pork, lamb and chicken. Autumn brings apples, corn, squash and pumpkins. In the winter when the fields are dormant, the barns give up their hay bales to nourish the livestock till spring rolls around again.
