A party in the country

Country Living Magazine came out to Tasia Malakasis's creamery: Belle Chèvre last night and that's when the party started...
While the ladies were getting dressed by Holly Ellis...

the boys quickly found their way into the barn and unearthed long lost treasures:
like this head,

 a pogo stick.

  a place to pee.
(look carefully)
a tractor
 and a perfect slingshot.
Thank you Mother Nature.

but here's where the REAL treasure was:
a beautiful lamb from White Oak Pastures
and my all time favorite Rancher: Will Harris
(no, that's not him in the photo)

prepared to perfection by the one and only David Bancroft
My apologies for not having the words to describe the experience of this roasted lamb.
It rocked! seems to fall short.
but sadly, that's the best I can do.

More beautiful food was prepared by Tasia Malakasis and the Country Living Staff: oysters, pimento chevre, boiled peanuts, figs stuffed with goat cheese and wrapped in prosciutto, and a decadent goat cheese ice cream with strawberries.
Libations provided by Phil Pritchard and Back Forty Beer.Phil and Trip and their beautiful brides (boot and all) with their contagious smiles, and mischievous grins,  made for a fun fun evening.
 OH! And then there was the band:

and then the sun went down

Fortunately I had my iPhone to get these photos.
Unfortunately, you'll have to wait until next year to see the official ones taken for Country Living.


  1. Whatever event this was, it was an adventure, a romantic escape, a bucolic escapade (if that is allowed combination at all:)
    You make country living so enticing:) Not that I would not kill for a farm:)
