Reader Ashley recently wrote to us with a snapshot of her visit to Red Sun Farm, a grass-fed beef and poultry operation near Cincinnati, Ohio.
This is so inspiring to us! As the weather warms and the earth gets softer, take a trip out of the city and find a farm to visit. When was the last time you saw cows up close and personal? Here's Ashley - read on for a bunch of great pictures from her visit to the farm.

Yesterday I drove around forty minutes to Red Sun Farm in Loveland, Ohio to scope out their operation. They are an amazing local grass-fed beef and poultry operation. I don't think it is possible for me to be more impressed! The farmer Jeff was knowledgeable and courteous and even let us wander the farm and take pictures.
My two year old learned a lot and had a blast -- growing up in the suburbs of Cincinnati he doesn't have the opportunity to play with chickens and cows everyday.
Their store is so quaint! It's self service so that you can come inside and help yourself, write your order in their ledger and leave your check or cash in their honesty box. They have a change making jar! They sell local honey in addition to their farm fresh eggs, frozen beef and poultry and pork from another local producer.
Besides this, I spotted Klean Kanteens, Seventh Generation paper products, home grown dried basil, and so many other things.
My favorite picture of the day:
